High Efficiency Motors

Increasing the Uptake of High Efficiency Motors (HEMs) and Drive Systems in Philippine Industries

According to the results of the scoping study funded by the International Finance Corporation in 2010-2011, the efficiency of motors currently used by the Philippine industries can strongly be increased. Improvements do not consist only in motors replacement. Fifty percent of motors are rewound periodically with a corresponding drop in efficiency of 5-10% at each rewinding. A significant share of the motors in place is also either undersized or oversized to compensate foreseen losses due to the low efficiency motors. The lack of proper sizing of motors leads to even lower efficiency and negatively impacts the life duration of the motors. Similar problems are met due to mis-alignments producing vibration and harmonic problems.

This Project aims to increase energy efficiency of the electricity-intensive industries and achieve reduction in electricity consumption, and to reduce contribution of industries in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Specifically, it aims to increase the deployment of more efficient electric motors and drive systems in Philippine industries.
