Driving fluid flow engines towards the ultimate productivity

Improve energy efficiency with synchronous-reluctance drive systems.

About 97% of the lifecycle costs of motors can be attributed to energy expenses. Moving to a synchronous-reluctance drive system is just one small step, but the impact is huge, especially during partial load. The high efficiency ensures minimal operating costs and energy optimization, a short payback period, and a fast return on investment.

Economic perspective

Focusing on economics

Approximately 97% of the life cycle costs are motor-based energy costs. But there are alternatives out there that pay off.
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.

Efficiency perspective

Efficiency perspective

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.
