In the oil and gas industry, large synchronous motors are used to drive water injection pumps to support the pressure of a reservoir and to maintain the production level of a reservoir over a longer period. Therefore, failures in such motors will have an adverse impact on operation and production. Even though synchronous motors are superior to induction… CONTINUE READING
