Together with scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, KSB specialists developed a very compact 22-kW synchronous reluctance motor. Semiconductor technology facilitates the cooling management that ensures removal of heat emerging from the power electronics. The element’s volume could be reduced by 25 %, due to the integrated frequency inverter. The drive exists as a prototype, which was built to demonstrate the potential of silicon carbide components in terms of higher motor ratings. This motor operates with a virtually trimmed impeller. Thus trimming is even possible after the pump set has been commissioned.
