The idea is simple. Take a conventional, proven stator technology and an innovative rotor design. Then combine them with a best-in-class industrial driven loaded with new, purpose-designed software.
Synchronous reluctance technology combines the performance of the permanent magnet motor with the simplicity and service-friendliness of an induction motor. The rotor has neither magnets nor winding and suffers virtually no power losses. And because there are nor magnetic forces in the rotor, maintenance is a straightforward as with induction motors.
Increasing efficiency on all motors could have a major impact on reducing energy consumption and overall operating costs, which is why we’re constantly innovating to deliver greater efficiency, reduce energy use and emissions.
ABB’s Ulf Hellstrom, Robert Chin and Stellan Rosenquist discuss the development, benefits and market outlook of the SynRM motor and the role of energy efficiency in the industry transformation towards sustainability. Led by Åsa Granli, ABB.
