[TCML] speeding up sync motors ?

A few have reported they run their SRSGs with variable frequency drives.
But with most electric motors, the range of RPM that can be achieved without
losing sync or overheating the motor is limited. You might get a 60 Hz
motor to work reliably at 40 to 90 Hz, but not 400 Hz.
You could experiment with a variable frequency sine wave oscillator driving
a hefty audio amplifier (capable of several hundred watts rms) driving a
beefy 6 volt filament transformer run backwards to step up the voltage to
120, and drive a small motor, e.g. 1/4 or 1/3 Hp.
But why not do as Dr. Resonance suggests and belt drive your RSG to step up
or down the RPM by varying the pulley sizes?

Wonder if anyone has tried to speed up sync motors by using a higher
frequency (maybe 200 or 400hz)... Options for this are either a 400hz
generator, or hack a regular DC to AC inverter to run at 400hz.... Just
