Synchronous Reluctance Motors
Synchronous reluctance motors have the characteristics of high efficiency at synchronous speed without the need for rare earth permanent magnets. These uniquely designed machines enable the use of a distributed sinusoidal AC stator windings taking advantage of the cost effectiveness of standard induction stator construction. Coupled with special rotor lamination design, these machines offer synchronous speed operation with a simple, low inertia rotating assembly construction. The synchronous reluctance motor is an attractive option for low torque applications requiring efficient operation. Regal has models in research and development covering a variety of end use applications. Regal provides customizable variable frequency drive solutions designed together with the synchronous reluctance motor to enable maximum performance over a wide speed range. Power ranges from 0.5kW to 150kW.
