The motor and drive industry has seen a surge in technology advancements improving performance and efficiency. The Keynote sessions at Motor & Drive Systems 2018 are designed to showcase how these new advancements can be best utilized by OEMs, system integrators and end-users whose products and systems depend on these technologies. The conference will also feature presentations on motion control, power electronics/modules, testing & simulation and components, market trends and growth areas as well as regulatory and safety issues.
Keynote and featured sessions include:
Industrial Internet of Things: Changing Paradigms in Motor Technologies and Motion Control
As manufacturers and OEMs seek ways to improve system and production efficiency, maximize production output, and reduce scrap, new designs in automation brought forth by advances in software and electronics call for wise use and better performance out of motor and motion control. In this presentation, we will look examine the various types of motors, from electric servomotors to high efficiency electric motors, and identify the advantages and disadvantages of each in applications ranging from robotics to packaging to CNC machining, when it comes to their integration with today’s leading-edge electronics and programming know-how.

Permanent Magnet Motor with Tested Efficiency Beyond Ultra-Premium/ IE5 Levels
The design and tested performance is presented for an extremely efficient industrial motor, suitable for comparison to NEMA’s induction motor efficiency standards, and equivalent European standards. The motor is an industrial PM motor, rated for 15hp/11kW, 1,800 rpm, and is an example of a new class of extremely efficient motors. A test procedure for direct comparison to induction motor efficiency is included, with and without the additional variable frequency drive losses. The results show that the PM motor efficiency is much higher than the best efficiency available for induction motors, and also significantly higher than the contemplated levels for future efficiency standards.
