Hi, I have a question about synchronous motors. If the DC field winding of a synchronous motor were to be replaced by a low-impedance short-circuited coil and the stator were to be supplied with 3-phase AC, would the rotor spin? If the answer is yes, would the rotor follow the direction of that of the RMF and would the rotor speed be the same as that of the RMF, like in a synchronous machine? Any explanations and insight would be much appreciated. Thanks!
