Energy Efficiency of Machines: The Smart Choice of Motorization
Industry and infrastructure consume morethan 31% of the available energy in theworld, and electrical motors alone representmore than 60% of that energy consumption.Designing a more energy efficient machinecreates cost savings over the lifetime of theequipment. This lower cost can then bepassed directly to end users. This
paper compares the technological capabilities and limitations of AC and synchronous motors, quantifying that a synchronous motor allows up to 20% energy savings while increasing performance.
