Machine Efficiency: A Practical Guide To Lower The Energy Consumption Of Your Design
In the face of economic uncertainties and increasing environmental concerns, many businesses today are evaluating ways to make their operations more lean, efficient, and environmentally friendly. Examining the electricity bill is a good place to start. The top consumers of electricity are typically the HVAC system and machinery, two motor-based applications. In fact, motor control is responsible for about two-thirds of the total electrical energy consumption in a typical industrial facility. The fundamental purpose of any electric motor is to convert electrical power into mechanical energy. The efficiency of this transformation depends on different technical aspects. It is influenced by not only the control system, the drive, the motor, and the mechanical system but also the machine process. In this webcast, learn about the key focus areas for lean and efficient machine design.
