Modular concept up to 18 megawatts cuts project planning times for Simotics motors


Siemens at the Hannover Messe 2015: Hall 9, Booth D35

  • New Simotics HV M motors in 4-pole and 6-pole variants with outputs of 16 MW at 10 kV and 18 MW at 6 kV (50 Hz)
  • Available with Sinamics medium-voltage converters as an Integrated Drive System (IDS)
  • Increased plant availability and short lead times

The new motors from the Simotics HV M series cover an output range of 16 MW at 10 kV and 18 MW at 6 kV (50 Hz). The use of standard tools ensures shorter engineering times.

The Simotics HV M series with a shaft height of 800 millimeters is the latest addition to Siemens' portfolio of modular, high-voltage motors. In the 4-pole and 6-pole variants, outputs of up to 18 MW at 6 kV (50 Hz) are now achievable, extending the benefits of a modular motor concept to users in this performance class.

Standardized production and test processes cut lead times, increase plant availability and simplify spare parts storage. Integration into standard tools such as Sizer Web Engineering shortens project planning times, and the tool also supports users in configuring system components.

A wide range of options means that Simotics HV M motors can be adapted precisely to the individual applications; special paint systems, for example, protect against salty or other aggressive environments. In the Ex p or Ex n variant, the motors are suitable for use in areas subject to explosion hazards.

Variants are also available for use in extremely low temperatures down to -50°C or in applications with rigorous vibration quality requirements in line with the API standard.

The Simotics HV M motors can be equipped with a predictive condition monitoring system, and can be combined with Sinamics medium-voltage converters to form Integrated Drive Systems. On the design side, customers benefit in particular from the reduced weight of the steel enclosure, which makes it easier to transport the motors and integrate them into the plant. The increased torsional stiffness of the motors boosts reliability and makes for greater plant availability.

Simotics HV M motors are used above all in compressor applications such as gas pipelines, gas storage facilities, air separation units and rolling mills.

Im Focus: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, provider of research and development services for OLED lighting solutions, announces the founding of the “OLED Licht Forum” and presents latest OLED design and lighting solutions during light+building, from March 18th – 23rd, 2018 in Frankfurt a.M./Germany, at booth no. F91 in Hall 4.0.

They are united in their passion for OLED (organic light emitting diodes) lighting with all of its unique facets and application possibilities. Thus experts in...

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...

Im Focus: Tiny implants for cells are functional in vivo

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.

In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
