I have found an old Teletype motor I would like to use in a
synchronous RSG and I have a couple of questions. The specs are:
1/12 hp, 3600 rpm, 60Hz, 115V single phase, time rating - continous.
My questions are:
1) Is this motor synchronous in the same sense that a salient pole
synchronous motor would be?
2) Does this motor require a start capacitor and if so how can I
calculate the value?
3) The motor has three wires in addition the case ground and I'm not
about the hookup.
Any help would be appreciated, especially pointers to internet resources
for finding info of this sort in the future.
