EMSA survey on digitalisation

EMSA Survey on digitalization for energy efficient electric motor driven systems

This survey is part of a study on the potential impact of digital technologies on the electricity consumption of electric motor systems in industrial companies. The research seeks to provide further insights to decision makers in industry and governments on what digitalisation can mean in energy efficiency of motor systems and energy transition in a broader perspective.

Electric motor driven systems convert electrical power into rotational mechanical power and may consist of the following individual components: electric motor, control, variable frequency drive, mechanical equipment (e.g. gear, belt, clutch, valve) and a driven application (e.g. pump, fan, compressor, transport system). Examples of IT-related technologies and products include advanced controls, data analytics, decision tools and new testing tools.

This questionnaire has been prepared under the Task New Industrial Developments and Digitalization in Motor Systems as part of the Electric Motor Systems Annex (EMSA) of the IEA Technology Collaboration Programme on Energy-Efficient End-Use Equipment (4E) and has been co-funded by the Austrian programme IEA Research Cooperation. Work under this Task is a collaborative effort by Austria, The Netherlands and Sweden.
