Extending the power and speed capabilities of standard induction electric motors

Markus Silventoinen The Switch solid-rotor technology extends the speed capabilities of standard induction electric motors, filling the existing gap for applications running below multi-megawatt powers. Typically, standard 2-pole induction motors reach speeds of 3,000–3,600 rpm and with a variable frequency drive (VFD), can reach speeds up to 4,500 rpm. In high-speed applications, a high-speed gearbox…
