High-speed motor for compressor systems

Advantage through optimization

Fuel cell technology is one of the key technologies of the future. Electricity can be generated from hydrogen and oxygen. This process requires a constant supply of air, which is provided by high-speed compressor systems.

Together with Pankl Turbosystems, LCM is developing very compact, high-speed drives for compressor systems for the air supply of fuel cells. The drive systems can also be used in electrically assisted turbochargers with just a few adaptations.

For high-speed drives, the electromagnetic design is not the only decisive factor. To develop an optimized overall system, strength, rotor dynamics, fluid dynamics and cooling must also be taken into account. The LCM development tool SyMSpace makes it possible to combine these different aspects in one model and optimize them holistically.
