BROCHURE: Efficiency Solutions for Motor-driven Systems
Not all of the electric energy that goes into a motor is converted to usable mechanical energy. Some of this energy is lost as heat during the conversion process, in the magnetic materials or through friction from inefficient motor bearings and via lubrication. Such losses occur at each step in the electric motor system, which compound along the way and can result in significant overall inefficiencies.
For this reason, UNIDO has long championed a ‘systems’ approach to achieving efficiency in industrial motor-driven systems rather than focusing on the maintenance of individual components. This brochure is part of a wider efficiency solutions series of knowledge kits which aims to equip industrial practitioners to take the first step towards energy efficiency.
