Global Round Robin converters workshop @ the Motor Summit 2018
13 November, Zurich
EMSA in cooperation with IEC has launched an international Round Robin testing program for converters losses. The goal is to present a reliable testing method for converter losses and to review the currently defined reference losses and efficiency classes for the planned revision of IEC 61800-9-2, edition 2. Independent testing laboratories from five countries are engaged in the current phase 1 of the project.

4E EMSA Policy Guidelines for Motor Driven Units – Part 2
This report focuses on pumps, fans and compressors in the main economic regions China, Europe and USA. It identifies benefits of an increased alignment of international technical standards and regulations and presents recommendations for policy makers and standards developers. It also includes an overview of the global market of these Motor Driven Units. 


EMSA Energy Audit Guide for Motor Driven Systems
How to perform a motor systems audit within a general energy audit? What are the steps and tasks? Where are the highest savings potentials? What tools and standards are useful? The EMSA Energy Audit Guide gives a systematic overview.


Swiss Topmotors Market Report 2017
According to the first Topmotors Market Report, the majority of motors sold in Switzerland complied to the minimum requirements. The average selling price of IE4 motors was 41% higher than of IE2 motors and 20% higher than of IE3 motors.

Topmotors BASICS no. 5
"Variable frequency drives: What are the benefits?
BASICS is a serie of general knowledge of Topmotors for projects on efficient motor driven systems in industry. BASICS no. 5 gives usefull information on variable frequency drives.
Variable frequency drives (VFD) are used to continually and electronically control asynchronous motors to lower and higher speeds, depending on the application. Modern standard motors can be operated with a VFD without any problems. Older motors, on the other hand, are not always compatible with VFDs due to electric and mechanical reasons. The big benefit for VFDs comes from motor systems with variable load like closed loop pumps and fans where the rotating speed influences the third power of the energy consumed. But, VFDs also cause additional losses and costs. The cost/benefit analysis will quickly show the optimum configuration.

All BASICS can be found here: www.topmotors.ch

Topmotors Fact sheet no. 28: Motor Systems Tool (MST)
The Topmotors Fact sheet No. 28 is now available online (D/F/E). It explains the “Motor Systems Tool” (MST) and contains a guided example for a systematic optimization of a motor driven system. The new version of the MST also includes two new languages (German and French) and an updated and enlarged database with all relevant standard motors (asynchronous, permanent magnet, SynRM motors) transmissions (belts and gears) and applications (fans, pumps, compressors, etc.). The IEC 61800-9-2:2017 interpolation and loss model is now also integrated.
