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

16.03.2015

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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
