Conference 2022 Electric Motors and Transformers
of the trade association Electrical Winding & Insulation Systems
CONFERENCE | 27.1.2022 | FULDA
It is doubly worthwhile to arrive already on January 26!
In addition to the popular get-together the evening before, a high-quality program has been put together for the day before. This starts already in the afternoon of 26 January from 15:30. During a live disassembly of two current electric motors from e-mobility, their structure will be analyzed. Afterwards, Prof. Achim Kampker (co-founder of Streetscooter) will provide an outlook on current developments in e-drives in the form of a roadmap.
Increasing energy density and efficiency: the right choice of materials makes it possible!
The demand for smaller, lighter and more efficient still applies to e-motors, transformers and generators! In addition to design, the right material selection is essential for the continuous improvement of energy density and efficiency.
The conference will address these topics in four sessions. Following on from the previous day, the series of presentations will get into the topic with a look at energy efficiency and insulation systems in norms + standards. Requirements from e-mobility and industrial drive technology will be addressed as examples.
This will be followed by a discussion of future challenges for insulation systems. These become clear when considering harmonics and transient loads that put the insulation under stress. Stress leads to aging and this can be monitored – one of the presentations shows how.
Increasing the voltage levels used in itself also leads to higher challenges. Using the example of traction inverters, solid insulating materials and process-safe winding technology, this will be considered in the third session.
The session will conclude with various aspects of thermal management, which is steadily gaining in importance as the key to high device reliability and service life.
The event will conclude with a brief summary and outlook for the near future from the perspective of the EWIS trade association.
