- A machine built as an induction engine and driven above synchronous speed, therefore acting as an alternating-current generator; -- called in addition asynchronous generator. Below synchronism the device ingests electrical energy and will act as an induction engine; at synchronism the ability part of present becomes zero and changes sign, to ensure above synchronism the device (driven for this purpose by technical energy) provides electrical energy as a generator.
