Synchronous reluctance technology increases energy efficiency and dynamic response

16.03.2015

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

  • Integrated Drive System (IDS) comprising Simotics reluctance motors and Sinamics converters for cost-effective, efficient plant operation
  • High levels of efficiency in full and partial load range
  • High dynamic response and speed consistency for precise control
  • Output range from 5.5 to 30 kilowatts (kW)

The Simotics reluctance motors with an aluminum or gray cast-iron enclosure cover an output range from 5.5 to 30 kW, achieving high levels of efficiency in full and partial load range.

Siemens is extending its portfolio of Integrated Drive Systems (IDS) with a new drive series featuring synchronous reluctance technology, characterized by very high levels of efficiency.

Reluctance motors and converters are specially designed to work together as an Integrated Drive System, enabling particularly efficient operation. Predefined parameters in the form of a code on the motor type plate simplify the commissioning process.

The new drive series is based on the proven Simotics 1LE1 motor platform, and is designed to interoperate with the Sinamics G120 converters. The Simotics reluctance motors cover an output range from 5.5 to 30 kW and are available either with an aluminum enclosure for general operating conditions (Simotics GP) or with a gray cast-iron enclosure for more aggressive operating conditions (Simotics SD). The synchronous principle means that the speed remains constant, and sensorless vector control ensures optimum performance. Both features enhance the controllability of the drive system. Ramp-up times are short thanks to the motor's low inherent moment of inertia combined with the vector control. The low losses in the rotor result in a high thermal utilization of the motor. In terms of its design and handling, the motor is similar to the 1LE1 asynchronous motors.

The Sinamics G120 standard converter incorporates vector control designed specifically for reluctance motors. The identification of the pole positions prevents jerking movements of the drive on activation, while a flying restart enables synchronization with the running motor. As part of the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) concept, the drive series is integrated into the automation environment via Profibus and Profinet interfaces.

The reluctance technology is used in process engineering with pumps, fans, compressors, mixers and centrifuges, in materials handling applications, and in the mechanical engineering sector.

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...
