Part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems book series (PEPS)


The following chapters study principles of operation, construction, mathematical model, and basic characteristics of synchronous machines. Along with induction machines, synchronous machines belong to the group of AC machines. Their operating principles are different. The rotor of induction machines revolves at the speed slightly lower than the synchronous speed, thus their name asynchronous machines. The rotor of synchronous machines revolves at the synchronous speed.
