The curve which is drawn between armature current and field is called V-curves which are shown in Figure 3.20.
In general, over excitation will cause the synchronous motor to operate at a leading power factor, while under excitation will cause the motor to operate at a lagging power factor. The synchronous motor thus possesses a variable-power factor characteristic.
