Optimizing Drive Systems for Energy Savings

Kevin Lifsey

Presented by Richard Messer, Siemens AG

The largest consumer of electrical power in a converting line or machine is in general the drive system. As energy costs continue to rise and energy conservation gains greater priority, technologies and methods that can be implemented to reduce the energy consumption, despite the increase in capital expenditure, are becoming increasingly attractive to both OEMs and end-users.

Methods to reduce overall energy consumption as well as balance or recover energy within the drive system based on state-of-the art drive technology are presented.
