Direct Comparison of Induction Motor and Line-Start IPM Synchronous Motor Characteristics for Semi-Hermetic Compressor Drives

Abstract

Motors in semi-hermetic compressor drives are mostly fed from line. Because of good cooling conditions, the motors are heavily loaded and employ a specific rotor structure with “C” bore. In the field of semi-hermetic drives, the use of induction motors (IMs) is still dominant, although different motor types with line-starting capabilities, as for example… (More)
