Compression Integrator Cuts Costs and Risk with Siemens Medium Voltage Drive Technologies
A Midwest-based natural gas compression system packager and pump company enjoyed strong growth, thanks to increased demand for its custom-packaged solution: high-speed reciprocating compressors with the right mix of motors, drives and other rugged gear customers needed in the field. When it received an order for multiple customer sites where the compression system would be used to prepare natural gas for transport on ocean-going vessels, the solution packager saw an opportunity to streamline its supply chain. Product height would not be easy to change since it was driven largely by the motor specifications of the compressor vendor.
Download the Compressor Case Study to learn how the Siemens engineering team worked closely with the customer and their torsional resonance analysis consult team to develop a solution that would work.
Siemens had to find a way to increase the motor's shaft diameter in a shorter frame without increasing torsional resonance, which can damage the motor. They also faced the difficult task of engineering a medium voltage drive that could perform up and down the synchronous transfer when having a power cell in bypass.
Together with the packager's engineering team, Siemens leveraged its decades of experience in drive technologies along with its own engineering expertise to create a solution that met the customer's specifications. Learn more about the results and benefits in this case study.
