TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company synchronous motors and generators provide superior value in terms of proven reliability, low maintenance performance and long life in any application. Our synchronous machines offer numerous benefits including:
- Constant-speed operation
- High efficiency ratings
- Low inrush currents
- Leading power factor (for corrective KVA capability)
These features make them the optimal choice for many industrial drive applications.
Power factor improvement is one of the most attractive considerations in selecting a synchronous machine. Synchronous motors operate at leading power factors and are available with rated power factors ranging from unity to leading. Thus they can produce substantial savings by supplying kvar's to counteract lagging power caused by other inductive loads.
