Solid rotor
Induction Machines

What is it

Solid rotor induction machines are a type of high speed electric machines/motors/generators.  The word machine is most appropriate as the devices are always bidirectional on the energy conversion front. The solid rotor is an improved design of conventional induction machines

Advantages

  • Larger rotor diameter
  • Longer rotor length
  • No gearboxes
  • No rare earth magnets
  • Longer fatigue life
  • Precise speed control
  • Simple geometery
