Creating Intelligent Motors
AC Induction Motors are responsible for consuming approximately half of the worlds’ energy. Unfortunately, motors lack the intelligence to address 3 Key Issues that lead to massive Energy Waste, Undue Wear & Tear and a key contributor to unnecessary carbon emissions.
3 Key Issues:
1) Fixed speed motor driven applications like Escalators, Pumps and Fans cannot intelligently adjust their torque output to match load changes leading to excess energy consumption.
2) When starting, a motor develops more torque than is required at full speed. There is a high In-Rush Current putting immense strain on motors which contributes to Peak Demand Penalties and mechanical breakdowns for example. To prevent these issues occurring, businesses often leave motors running continuously even when they are not being used. Again, a massive contributor to excess energy waste and costs.
3) Motors require expensive maintenance costs to operate reliably at all times which is vital for any business heavily reliant on ‘On-Time’ production requirements. Motors without a Variable Speed Drive (VSD) installed often experience Unscheduled Maintenance and/ or Unnecessary Wear & Tear of Equipment leading to earlier replacements and further additional costs.
Our Variable Speed Drive (VSD) Products are suited to 1KW Motors all the way up to 2000KW Motors. Combined with our unique engineering solutions, Australian Green Energy will provide Industrial & Commercial customers with immediate benefits for a diverse range of operations and applications including: Water & Sewerage, Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC), Refrigeration, Irrigation, Pumping, Mining, Distribution Centres, Heavy Industry, Manufacturing, Agricultural, Transport, Food and beverage to name a few.
