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 megawatt (MW). Its flexible modular concept makes this series ideal for precisely tailored solutions in all kinds of industrial applications in the high power range.
The new series benefits from short delivery periods and helps minimize the work involved in planning and engineering, speeding up project completion and bringing forward overall plant commissioning. These high-voltage motors can be used for a wide range of applications in fields as diverse as ship building, power plant technology, and the oil, gas, metal and fiber industries.
The reduced planning and engineering input required is due to integration into the Siemens standard tools which now permit simple, rapid selection and configuration up to 70 MW. 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).
All the models of the Simotics HV HP series are available as synchronous or induction motors, in a high- or low-temperature version, with gas and dust explosion protection and with a wide variety of cooling methods. Simotics HV HP complies with a wide number of industry and country-specific certification requirements such as API, TR CU, CSA and NEMA.
With Simotics HV, Siemens covers a power range of up to 100 MW and beyond. All its high-voltage motors are available in a varied choice of configurations. By providing scope for selecting different cooling systems and protection ratings, as well as suitability for use in aggressive and potentially explosive atmospheres, the series affords an extreme degree of flexibility. The HV family is also characterized by its extreme reliability and long service life.
