Repairing Motors With Solar Powered Tools

Industrial Motor Repairing Tools - Solar Generators

The whole world seems to be trying to get off-grid these days. Homeowners are installing solar panels, and even the tall wind turbines, for renewable energy sources. Some are using this as a means of cutting down on energy bills or providing back-up in an emergency. Others are going further and can create a fully-working campsite or an eco-friendly home without commercial electricity.

These achievements raise questions about the potential of off-site mechanics and electricity use in different fields. For example, could workers use power tools with solar generators alone for motor repairing?

DOE Motor

Industrial Motor- DOE Motor System 

In 1998, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a comprehensive Motor System Market Assessment. The study was responsible for the way that the country looked at motors and fuel consumption nationally.As such, it was the measure to which they set their standards. It was also their means of understanding the place of individual motor technologies within the market. At the time, the results were significant. They found that in 1994, motor-driven system consumed 747 billion kWh, which related to 25% of US electricity sales.This meant that motors were the largest single users of electricity in the US. It was also estimated at the time that there was the potential for energy savings up to 18%. 62% of that within pumps, fans, and compressed air systems.

AC Motors For Heavy Industry

Industrial Motor

The standard electric motor is not a straightforward as many non-specialists might assume. There are lots of different types of motors out there for use in various applications within heavy industry. These motors fall under a series of the main categories, and each has its pros and cons for specific needs. The following guide looks at some the motor types in the AC and DC categories while considering some significant advancements.These improvements showcase the complexity of these new models and the way that developers are examining the needs of the industry.
