Re: [TCML] Synchronous Motor Question

    A _synchronous_ motor is a distinct subtype.
    Any motor will have a rated RPM.  That RPM might match that of
    a synchronous motor: if the motor is not, internally, a
    synchronous motor, its not synchronous.

    Ferinstance an 'induction motor' will have a 'synchronous
    speed' spec.  Its not a synchronous motor.  Some induction
    motors are 'synchronous enough' for gap use.

    (This is from a generic motor spec point of view, rather than
     coiling specific...)
