The answer is yes, but that article is either incomplete or erroneous.
It omits any method for starting the three phase motor on a single
phase!!!!! It will work once the motor is startedd, but the motor won't
start if you just connect single-phase excitation to it. Also, some of
the comments on large power handling capability sound suspicious.
