Reluctance Drive System

Driving fluid flow engines towards the ultimate productivity

Improve energy efficiency with synchronous-reluctance drive systems, especially during the partial load. 
Efficiency perspective

Focusing on efficiency

Synchronous-reluctance drive systems allow high productivity with minimum operating costs thanks to extremely low power consumption.

Improved productivity

The synchronous-reluctance drive system features high control dynamics and high speed stability in encoderless operation. That means productivity improvements and saves costs for encoders and cables.

Digitalization: The way to fast, efficient operation. A perfectly harmonized solution

Digitalization is becoming more and more prominent in all industries. Thus, the new generation of synchronous-reluctance systems offers powerful advantages to obtaining the necessary information from motors. Thanks to the knowledge gained, production can be strengthened and driven forward in a targeted manner. The Digital Twin and the SIMOTICS Digital Data App are the key to the digitized world of synchronous-reluctance drive systems.

Technical perspective

Focusing on technical benefits

Drives with synchronous-reluctance technology are characterized by very high levels of efficiency, particularly at part load. As an integrated drive system, the reluctance motor and inverter are carefully coordinated and enable a particularly economical operation.

More than just a drive system

The combination of a SIMOTICS reluctance motor and SINAMICS converter is unparalleled: In an Integrated Drive System, reluctance motors and converters are specifically coordinated to work together and provide for particularly cost-effective operation. Significant efficiency benefits can be seen as a result of the seamless integration into automation as well as through efficient engineering and service concepts across the entire lifecycle.
