Yes, there is that exception, they need an excitation current, true, but
in that case they make excellent brakes as they don't like spinning
above synchronous any better than they like running below it. And with
enough dc current you can come pretty close to stopping them dead in
their tracks. Certainly within one revolution. But the armature is
soft, and its not possible to maintain the magnetic field from its
shorted turns armature long enough to extract any output power from it
for more than a few milliseconds.
