A Measurement Method of Determining the Power Supply Parameters for the Optimal Operation of a Synchronous Motor

   | Jan 21, 2022


The article presents a measurement method for determining the power supply parameters for the optimal operation of a synchronous motor, i.e. operation with minimal losses in the entire load range. The measurement strategy is based on the search for the minimum sum of the power supplied to the excitation circuit and the stator circuit for the assumed load torque values. The process of searching for the minimum sum of power can be significantly shortened and simplified by using a network parameter meter. The research confirmed the usefulness of the proposed method for determining the optimal operation parameters of a synchronous motor. The tested motor was a machine with a cylindrical rotor, but the developed method will also be applicable to synchronous machines with salient pole rotors.
