About CEMEP LV MOTORS

Welcome to CEMEP’s new web site where you can learn about our activities and goals. Our objective is to support a fair competition under reasonable conditions in the field of LV Motors in Europe by helping the LV Motor manufacturers to achieve and maintain competitiveness in the global market through innovation and advanced technology. This in conjunction with the technical expertise and practical assistance we give to relevant EU authorities for the development and realisation of practical industrial policies that drive sustainability and growth.

We always observe European directives and standards and strongly support effective market governance whilst encouraging and assisting each EU member state in the drive to a fair implementation of European laws, regulations and directives. Our aim is to provide a healthier and safer environment for our people and commit to strong ethical behaviour within our business community.

Thank you for your interest in CEMEP LV Motors.

Electric motors are electromechanical energy converters; their function is based on the effect of magnetic forces between electric currents and magnetic fields, which are usually also electrically generated. This principle explains why electric motors have a relatively high efficiency. Typical efficiencies for an 11 kW standard motor are around 91 per cent, and 95 per cent for a 110 kW motor. In accordance with growth laws, the efficiencies of larger motors are higher than those of smaller ones.

The art of motor design and dimensioning lies in finding an optimum balance between losses and the required operating properties. Depending on the type of electrical machine and its underlying design principle, each of these factors can be influenced to a greater or lesser extent by dimensioning. However, there is hardly any scope left for further technical optimization of efficiencies in today’s motors.
