State the various applications of synchronous motor.

Various applications of synchronous motor : 
  • It is capable of being operated under a wide range of power factors, both lagging and leading. Hence, it can be used for power factor correction purpose. 
  • In textile industry high speed drives are necessary with wide range of control. Variable frequency drives with synchronous motors are used for speed control. 
  • In chemical industry, rubber industry and petrochemical industry, many processes require compressor drives in which direct coupled synchronous motors supplied by frequency converters are used. 
  • An artificial fibre plant needs variable frequency synchronous motor and are supplied by static frequency converters. 
  • Synchronous motor is also useful for voltage regulation.
