Looking Beyond the Motor for Increased Drive Train Efficiencies

The importance of drive train efficiency Control Engineering, December 6, 2016 Rather than breaking down the drivetrain into different sections and focussing on a single component, such as the motor, Bauer believes that a view should be taken of a single, ‘electro-mechanical’ package – one which must be fully integrated to achieve maximum performance. Despite

Calculating the Measured Efficiency of a Motor

High Efficiency Motors Manufacturing Tomorrow, November 15. 2016 The final measured efficiency of a motor is calculated based only on the elements of the particular application they’re used in. For the motors themselves, without a load, manufacturers provide ratings based on standard formulas. To understand high efficiency motors you only need to know what makes

Q-Sync Motors Benefit Consumers and Utilities

Bryan Kilgore, ERS, for Zondits QM Power’s advanced new Q-Sync motor provides improved efficiency versus shaded-pole and electronically commutated (EC) motors. Not only do Q-Sync motors benefit businesses through energy and demand savings, but they also benefit the utilities at the source by reducing apparent power (total power delivered from the grid) through power factor
