MTE Releases Whitepaper Outlining Benefits, Challenges of Permanent Magnet Motors, and How to Protect Your Investment

Menomonee Falls, WI | July 6, 2016 – MTE Corporation, an international supplier of power quality solutions for commercial and industrial applications, has published a new whitepaper on permanent magnet motors. The whitepaper titled, “Understanding Permanent Magnet Motor Operation and Optimized Filter Solutions,” outlines the benefits of using permanent magnet motors and explains the importance of using filters to ensure longer motor life.

“Over the last several years, we have seen more and more companies choosing to use permanent magnet motors instead of induction motors in their systems. This is because permanent magnet motors help reduce costs over the life of the systems with their increased energy savings,” said Stu Accola, Product Marketing Manager for MTE Corporation. “In order to realize longer life and energy savings, it is critical that the motor be protected from power distortions, harmonics, and overheating, which can be accomplished by the use of an appropriately designed motor protection filter.”

MTE’s new whitepaper covers a variety of topics. It provides a thorough explanation of permanent motor operation versus induction motor operation. It also includes information about how to protect permanent magnet motors through the use of filters. In addition, the whitepaper discusses considerations related to universal filters.
