Synchronous reluctance motors (SynRM)

The synchronous reluctance (SynRM) motor is a three-phase electric motor with a magnetically anisotropic rotor structure. The rotor in a synchronous reluctance motor has no magnets or windings and suffers virtually no power losses. Synchronous reluctance technology combines the performance of permanent magnet motors with induction motors, without the use of rare earth metals. 

  • Reliability with a sustainable and long-lasting performance by minimizing motor failures and downtime.
  • Ultra-premium energy efficiency
  • Deliver full torque from zero speed and give excellent partial-load efficiency
  • Improved bearing system reliability

ABB Permanent magnet motors

The permanent magnet motor range extends the effective nominal speed range of the rugged industry workhorses down to 100 – 850 r/min. The motors can simplify drive systems by effectively eliminating the need of speed reduction devices. They are designed exclusively for frequency converter supply, where they provide high speed accuracy even without speed sensors because they are synchronous motors without rotor slip.

  • Construction based on standard induction motor design
  • Rotor magnetization by permanent magnets
  • Totally enclosed IP 55 construction
  • Torque range 1000 to 50 000 Nm

ABB Water cooled motors

Water cooled motors ensure maximum reliability combined with a compact installation footprint for on-shore and offshore applications and industries. Water cooling is a highly efficient method of transferring heat away from the motor. Typical water cooled motor applications include thruster and propulsion motors, wind turbine generators, water and waste water pumps, tunnel-boring machines, extruders, printing presses and paper machines.

  • Ideal choice for applications where reliable and powerful operation is required
  • High power density: higher ratings per frame size than traditional air-cooled motor designs
  • Equipped with a steel frame and high-quality coating, the motor features excellent resistance to corrosion and dust accumulation.
