Motors and Drives - Tips To help You Save

  • Premium high efficiency motors can provide significant energy and money savings and improve operating conditions.
  • Ensure you select a properly sized motor based on your needs.
  • Install variable speed drives (VSDs) on large motor loads, where appropriate, to further reduce usage.
  • Perform scheduled maintenance on your systems. Establish a motor repair/replace policy to achieve cost-effective and energy efficiency results.
  • When rewinding a 3-phase AC motor between 100 HP and 5,000 HP, consider using AEP Ohio's EMotor Rewind Pilot Program to maintain higher efficiency than a standard rewind.
