Synchronous Motor and Controller Maintenance

3.0 1 Review SKU: EMSMC00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Synchronous Motor MaintenancePower factor correction; Constant Speed under varying load; High efficiency; High torque at low speeds; Low Maintenance; Performance stability and Compatibility with Variable Speed Drives are among the many reasons for the popularity of Synchronous Motor Applications throughout industry. Like all manufactured products, however, Synchronous motor systems must be monitored and maintained or the performance benefits will diminish or disappear. This lesson focuses on the routine maintenance requirements for Synchronous motors and their controllers.
