Title: Energy-efficient electric motors: selection and application

Abstract

Electric-motor design has shifted from an emphasis on improving the manufacturing technology to reduce first costs to an emphasis on increasing motor efficiency and the power factor as a result of rising energy costs. This book provides guidelines for selecting and applying electric motors on an energy conservation and life-cycle cost basis. Particular emphasis is given to both single-phase and three-phase motors in the 1- to 124-horsepower range since this is the range that offers the maximum opportunities for energy savings. The chapter headings are: Induction motor characteristics; Energy-efficient motors; Electric power costs; The power factor; Applications of electric motors; Induction motors and adjustable speed; and Economics of energy-efficient motors and systems. 26 references, 102 figures, 37 tables.
