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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
