Introduction to Energy Efficient motors

Efficiency of an electric motor is defined as the efficiency with which it converts electrical energy to mechanical energy.

About 70 percent of total generated electrical energy generated in India is consumed by Electric motor applications and electric motors, therefore using high efficiency motors will result in huge savings & reduction in environmental impact.

To achieve this benefit, the department of industrial policy (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce and Industry has issued a gazette notification, to be forced into effect  starting Oct 2017, banning IE1 Motors, to comply with  IS: 12615: 2011. Motor Manufacturers need to migrate to IE2 and IE3 Standards. IE2 Motors, IE3 Motors will lead to huge energy savings.


Efficiency Standards

The IEC has put in place energy efficiency classes for electric motors, known as the IE code, which are summarized in IEC International Standard (IEC 60034-30-1:2014). This covers low-voltage three phase asynchronous motors in the power range from 0.75 kW to 375 kW.

The Standard includes four levels of motor efficiency:

  • IE1 (Standard Efficiency)
  • IE2 (High Efficiency)
  • IE3 (Premium Efficiency)
  • IE4 (Super Efficiency)

Cost Savings & Efficiency Benefits

The advantage for end users is a considerable reduction in running costs over the lifecycle of the IE3 rated motor, along with far fewer carbon emissions. Any plants interested in making their processes more efficient, cost effective and sustainable, should consider installing an IE3 rated motor.
