The customer, one of the major global players in the marine energy business, had requested an electrical motor able to operate in three different operation modes with specific requirements for each single mode.
Marelli Motori’s technical know-how on electromagnetic behavior was key in satisfying the customer’s demanding expectations. The solution, for this fishing trawler application, included a type B5V 560 motor, working at a speed range of 0 to 1200 rpm and fed by inverter at variable voltage and frequency.
Marelli Motori’s engineers focused on optimizing all of the mechanical aspects (heat exchanger, sleeve bearings and ventilation system), minimizing losses while improving dissipation. The final result: great performance and enhanced power of the electrical machine in all 3 operating modes.
