Hyundai Ideal Electric Co., in business since 1903, specializes in the design and manufacture of large, to-order electric motors, generators, switchgear and controls.
Hyundai Ideal Electric Co. has built synchronous motors for over seventy years. Our expertise, combined with high quality materials and manufacturing processes, results in a reliable, cost-effective motor with high performance and low operating costs.
Synchronous motors are typically 1% to 2% more efficient than induction motors. This results in a substantial reduction in operating costs over the life of the motor.
Eliminate Demand Charges
Synchronous motors consume no reactive power, avoiding utility demand charges that are common with induction motors. A synchronous motor running at unity or leading power factor actually supplies reactive power back to the power system, improving the operations of a plant’s electrical system and reducing operating costs.
Many synchronous motors are designed with torque values greater than those specified in NEMA. Designing and manufacturing a motor to the application allows for trouble free operation without downtime and the high costs associated with loss of production.
Because synchronous motors typically have lower inrush current than induction motors, synchronous motors minimize the voltage dip on the power supply system when starting. This may eliminate the brown outs and resulting computer equipment shutdowns that can occur while starting large induction motors.
While running at synchronous speed there is zero slip. This increases the output of the driven equipment.
