ABB SynRM

ABB Synchronous Reluctance (SynRM) Motors – The efficient choice.

In this article, George Dodwell from ABB tells us about the benefits of the ABB SynRM Motor. So, in the world of efficiency, why wouldn’t you want the most efficient motor in its class? Running cooler with less audible noise and a higher class of energy efficiency why wouldn’t you use SynRM? SynRm motors have revolutionised the market with class leading IE5 technology, The IE5 motor differs from the norm as the rotor contains no…

SynRM Drive Package Lowers Energy Use and Noise Levels on a Plastic Extrusion Line

In this video we see how an ABB SynRM and variable speed drive package has lowered the energy use and reduced noise levels of a plastic extrusion line. For those unable to view the video with sound, the transcribe of the video is below: SynRM Drive Package Lowers Energy Use and Noise Levels on a Plastic Extrusion Line: The Radius Systems plant, located in Derbyshire, United Kingdom, manufacturers plastic piping. Six of its fourteen extrusion…

SynRM Improves Energy Use Reduces Maintenance And Lowers Noise In Pipe Extruder

Constant torque application benefits from SynRM technology Up to 15 percent lower energy use, a significant reduction in motor maintenance costs and a drop in audible noise are achieved with the installation of an ABB synchronous reluctance motor and drive (SynRM) package on a twin extruder application. Radius Systems’ plant in Derbyshire, UK, houses 14 extrusion lines, each of which produces polyethylene pipes from 16 mm to 1200 mm, together with an injection-moulding facility making…

Why the Reluctance?

When it comes to efficiency, if you were to put a synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM) head-to-head against an equivalent induction or permanent magnet motor the former will easily come out on top. Yet, despite this and many other advantages, SynRM remains far from ubiquitous in industry. Dave Hawley, General Manager for Motors & Generators, ABB, explores five myths surrounding the technology. MYTH: SynRMs are only suitable for certain applications SynRMs are compatible with almost any…

6 Reasons to Choose SynRM

The synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM) has been around for nearly a century, and yet it is only in recent years that it has become commercially viable as a high efficiency alternative to the induction motor. ABB’s Dave Hawley explains some of the benefits.   6 reasons to choose SynRM The core idea of a synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM) is that the rotor has no windings or magnets, just electric steel plates stacked together to form…

ABB IE4 SynRM Motors for Pumps and Fans

Over the life of an electric motor, the power cost in just one year can be ten times the capital cost. Over the life of a motor, the power cost is by far the most significant for a motor that runs most of the year. Therefore the most important factor when choosing a new motor is its efficiency. Motors are rated IE1 to IE4 in increasing efficiency: If the motor is driving a pump or a fan…
