In every process where the energy is converted, there is an electrical system that enables this to happen. Electro Drives supplies and provide services on controls, power electronics and motors/generators for large applications which allows to start and run at variable speed.
We supply and service SER Drives and LRS which are mostly used in grinding mills (SAG mills, AG mills and ball mills). The combination of SER Drives and LRS in WRIM (Wound Rotor Induction Motor) has been proven to be the most reliable solution for this critical process as it gives full redundancy of the electrical equipment.
Oil and Gas
Electro Drives has a large number of equipment related to motor starting and motor speed control within the oil and gas industry. When safety, availability and performance are first, our soft starters and variables speed drives provides the highest guarantees that allows its integration in chemical industries, extraction plants, refineries, storage and distribution plants of petroleum derivatives and thermal generation plants.
There are quite a broad range of technologies in development for the energy storage which includes lithium-ion battery storage, flow battery storage, ultracapacitor storage, flywheel energy storage, compress air storage, pumped hydro storage, etc. Electro Drives provides solutions for the energy conversion from and to the grid.
Large scale motoring applications requirements requires specific drive solutions. A traditional VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) may not be the right choice for large induction motors. Chopper Drives, SER Drives, Static Soft Starters are some of the options that may fit best. Typical processes include rotary kiln (cement plants), exhaust air cooling (steelworks or thermal power plants), grinding mills (concentrator plants), conveyors (mines), etc.
