The speed of a non-inverter air conditioner compressor [1] governed by the speed of the motor which is a single speed. Most standard synchronous motors [2] in the USA run 1800 rpm as a result our standard 60Hz electrical frequency. The same motors will run at 1500 rpm in Europe and other countries where 50Hz power is most common.

This speed can be changed through the use of gears and by changing the number of poles on the motor.
