This article presents the performance and size comparisons of direct-drive induction motors with gearbox-driven systems. Three different low-speed applications with output speeds to the driven equipment ranging from 300-600 r/min is reviewed. In addition, permanent-magnet (PM) motor advantages and disadvantages are also discussed.
