synchronous machine

synchronous machine
: a dynamoelectric machine (as a generator or motor) that has a constant magnetic field and an armature which receives or delivers alternating current in synchronism with the motion of the machine and at a frequency equal to the product of the number of pairs of poles and the speed of the machine in revolutions per second — compare alternator, converter b, motor 4, rectifier 3, synchronous converter

* * *

an alternating-current machine in which the average speed of normal operation is exactly proportional to the frequency of the system to which it is connected.

synchronous machine,
Electricity. a dynamo-electric machine, either a generator, motor, or converter, that operates at a speed exactly proportional to the frequency of the current.
