A machine is said to be self controlled if it gets its variable frequency from an inverter whose thrusters are freed in a sequence, using the information of rotor position or stator voltages. In the former a rotor position sensor is employed which measures the rotor position with respect to the stator and sends pulses to the thyristors. Thus frequency of the inverter output is decided by the rotor speed.
A self controlled synchronous motor is a substitute for a D.C. motor drive and finds application where a D.C. motor is objectionable due to its mechanical Commutator, which limits the speed range and power output.
