Abstract : The report details the design and testing of a synchronous motor with superconducting field and armature windings. Data are furnished on the performance of the superconducting field and armature windings. The open-circuit characteristics and terminal characteristics of the loaded machine operating as a generator with its armature in LN2 and in the superconducting state are given. Data are given on the machine operated as a synchronous motor. The design for a number of 3000-hp motors with superconducting field winding is given. (Author)
