ABB SynRm Motors Improve Efficiency & Power Density

ABB offers SynRM motor and VSD packages

World Cement, January 9, 2015

Balancing energy efficiency improvements with process control requirements is eliminated with ABB’s synchronous reluctance (SynRM) motor and variable-speed drive (VSD) packages.

Motor Efficiency
ABB’s SynRM motor and variable-speed drives that make up a SynRM package.

An innovative synchronous reluctance motor that combines all of the energy saving benefits of permanent magnet technology together with the service-friendliness of an induction motor platform paired with an ABB industrial drive and advanced software, offers a complete package for end users and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

ABB’s motor has no rotor windings in the traditional sense. The rotor, therefore, suffers virtually no power losses and its temperature remains lower than in conventional rotors, delivering losses typically 40% lower than its induction motor counterpart. The motor is available in two distinct packages, the first is a motor that is the same physical size as a standard IE induction motor but operates at IE4 efficiency levels. The second variant is called ‘High Output’ (HO), which is typically two frame sizes smaller for the same equivalent power compared to induction motors and still maintains IE3 energy efficiency levels.
