Original Press Release:
Modular Concept up to 18 Megawatts Cuts Project Planning Times for Simotics Motors
New Simotics HV M motors in 4-pole and 6-pole variants with outputs of 16 MW at 10 kV and 18 MW at 6 kV (50 Hz)
Available with Sinamics medium-voltage converters as an Integrated Drive System (IDS)
Increased plant availability and short lead times
The Simotics HV M series with a shaft height of 800 millimeters is the latest addition to Siemens' portfolio of modular, high-voltage motors. In the 4-pole and 6-pole variants, outputs of up to 18 MW at 6 kV (50 Hz) are now achievable, extending the benefits of a modular motor concept to users in this performance class. Standardized production and test processes cut lead times, increase plant availability and simplify spare parts storage. Integration into standard tools such as Sizer Web Engineering shortens project planning times, and the tool also supports users in configuring system components. A wide range of options means that Simotics HV M motors can be adapted precisely to the individual applications; special paint systems, for example, protect against salty or other aggressive environments. In the Ex p or Ex n variant, the motors are suitable for use in areas subject to explosion hazards. Variants are also available for use in extremely low temperatures down to -50°C or in applications with rigorous vibration quality requirements in line with the API standard.
Modular concept up to 18 megawatts cuts project planning times for Simotics motors.
The new motors from the Simotics HV M series cover an output range of 16 MW at 10 kV and 18 MW at 6 kV (50 Hz). The use of standard tools ensures shorter engineering times.
The Simotics HV M motors can be equipped with a predictive condition monitoring system, and can be combined with Sinamics medium-voltage converters to form Integrated Drive Systems. On the design side, customers benefit in particular from the reduced weight of the steel enclosure, which makes it easier to transport the motors and integrate them into the plant. The increased torsional stiffness of the motors boosts reliability and makes for greater plant availability.
Simotics HV M motors are used above all in compressor applications such as gas pipelines, gas storage facilities, air separation units and rolling mills.
