Siemens extends high-voltage motor portfolio to include new series up to 70 MW
With its new high-voltage motor series Simotics HV HP, Siemens is now able to cover an extended power range of up to 70 MW. Its flexible modular concept makes this series ideal for precisely tailored solutions in all kinds of industrial applications in the high power range. These high-voltage motors can be used for a wide range of applications. The design is implemented using Siemens PLM software, which allows data generated to also be used for plant planning. The use of standardized interfaces and the simple, compact concept make for easier plant integration. In terms of its structure, the system benefits from an optimized base frame which not only reduces noise and vibrations to a minimum but also makes the motor exceptionally robust and able to cope with extreme ambient conditions, helping to maximize the availability of the overall plant. Overall availability also benefits from integration into condition monitoring systems, a service-friendly design and simplified spare part procurement due to a high degree of component standardization. An added bonus is the extensive scope for system testing to ensure the optimum interaction of Simotics HV HP and Sinamics medium-voltage converters within an Integrated Drive System (IDS).
