What is the difference between synchronous and asynchronous motors?

Answer :

The motor which rotates at constant speed is called synchronous motor. And that constant speed is called as synchronous speed.  And the motor which does not rotates at constant speed are called asynchronous motor. Asynchronous motor is also called as Induction motor.

Why are DC motors used in trains and not AC motors ?

Answer :

The reason is torque. torque is inversely proportional to speed..i.e when th knowe train comes to rest position to motion.. initial speed is zero..so it requires high starting torque for ... current will flow through field and armature coils then maximum torque is available at the intial condition.

Why synchronous machine is called doubly excited machine?

Answer :

Armature windings of synchronous machines either deliver 3 phase AC or absorb 3 phase AC source,  whereas field windings are energized from DC source. Thus due to presence of AC on armature and DC on field windings, synchronous machines are often referred as doubly excited machines.
