About 97% of the lifecycle costs of motors can be attributed to energy expenses. Moving to a synchronous-reluctance drive system is just one small step, but the impact is huge, especially during partial load. The high efficiency ensures minimal operating costs and energy optimization, a short payback period, and a fast return on investment.
Synchronous-reluctance drive systems allow high productivity with minimum operating costs thanks to extremely low power consumption.
The synchronous-reluctance drive system features high control dynamics and high speed stability in encoderless operation. That means productivity improvements and saves costs for encoders and cables.
Drives with synchronous-reluctance technology are characterized by very high levels of efficiency, particularly at part load. As an integrated drive system, the reluctance motor and inverter are carefully coordinated and enable a particularly economical operation.
The combination of a SIMOTICS reluctance motor and SINAMICS converter is unparalleled: In an Integrated Drive System, reluctance motors and converters are specifically coordinated to work together and provide for particularly cost-effective operation. Significant efficiency benefits can be seen as a result of the seamless integration into automation as well as through efficient engineering and service concepts across the entire lifecycle.
Approximately 97% of the life cycle costs are motor-based energy costs. But there are alternatives out there that pay off.
Have a look at some application examples that may be of interest to you.
