The field of different electric drive engines is inexhaustible. Within a performance range of a few milliwatt up to gigawatt dimensions, electric machines ensure the transition between electrical and mechanical performance.
ELIN Motoren focuses on the manufacturing of induction machines as both asynchronous and synchronous machines within a performance range of 50 kW to 60 MVA.
In general, any electric machine can operate as both a motor and a generator. Of significance is merely the power flow direction. In the case of a generator, the turbine is used to bring the shaft train up to speed. The issue with the start-up, which also poses the main design criteria, only occurs in operation with a motor.
