Topic: AC Motors in Parallel (Read 804 times) previous topic - next topic


Dear all,

I have an epson printer that runs an ac motor as a paper feeder. I want to connect another ac motor in parallel to that so they run at the same speed, torque, and etc.

One motor will have significantly more load than the other...

Do you think this will work?

Let me know!

Thank you! :D


In general loads in parallel don't affect each other if the supply is a good approximation to a pure voltage source.  But the mechnical loads
will affect the speed v. torque values separately for each.

But what kind of AC motors are these?
