SET GmbH has been nominated for the Carinthian Innovation and Research Prize 2016

Since 1991, the Kärntner Wirtschaftswährungsfonds (KWF) has been awarding the Carinthian Innovation and Research Prize. Each year a jury is distinguishing highly innovative Carinthian companies in three categories:

  • micro enterprises
  • small and medium-sized businesses
  • major enterprises

On 24th November 2016 SET GmbH has been nominated for this prize in the category “small and medium-sized businesses” with our outstanding project “Variable Speed Electro-Mechanical Gearbox”. It has to be mentioned that we were the only company of our sector which was nominated at the award ceremony in the Lakeside Park Klagenfurt. This nomination proves that SET GmbH can be seen as a reliable business partner in implementing highly innovative ideas.

Projektteam SET: Innovations- und Forschungspreis 2016

Presentation at CWP 2016

For the first time SET GmbH is presenting its new innovative product the TRD-unit (Torque Ramp Down Unit) at the China Wind Power 2016 (20th of October, Beijing).

Content: The TRD-unit is a wear-free Eddy Current brake (ECB) which reduces the loads of a WEC in case of a LVRT or any other unpredictable failure.  High stress cannot be prevented, so the WEC has to be designed for these cases. This can be seen by the large amount of material used for WECs (e.g. DFIG) already in operation, which led to an increase in overall costs. To minimize these dimensioning loads, the company SET GmbH from Klagenfurt in Austria has developed a robust, very controllable and cost effective system: a wear-free Eddy Current brake (ECB) mounted on the generator’s HSS under the brand name TRD-unit.  The TRD-unit is an effective option for slowing down a WEC within a short time period, before the WEC´s pitching system is able to react.

This leads to the fact, that the structural loads due to LVRT are no longer dimensional loads. Foundation, tower, rotor blades, gears and bearings can be designed under load reduced conditions. It is expected that the saving of materials lies in the lower two-digit percentage range.CWP2016, Presentation of SET´s TRD-unit, Maximilian Hehenberger (November 20th, Beijing)

SET presented at 13th European Fluid Machinery congress

At 13th European Fluid Machinery congress Mr. Maximilian Hehenberger, the head of Business Development & Sales of SET GmbH, has presented his article with the title “Increased Efficiency and Reliability through an Electro-Mechanical Differential System Providing Variable Speed to Pumps and Compressors”.

Content: The objective of this article is to assess an electro-mechanical differential system (EMDS) system providing variable speed to a driven machine (e.g. compressor, blower, pump, etc.) in terms of applicability and energy Efficiency.

At the beginning of 2015 the European Union released a new standard, the EN 50598 series, leading to increased demand for variable speed drives. Beyond other drive train technologies, the EMDS is one possible solution for meeting the standard’s requirements. In this connection, efficiency and the resulting life cycle costs are essential to ensure compliance. The assessment of the EMDS reveals that this drive train technology is a compatible solution to meet future challenges…to read the whole article klick [here].

Performance tests at Sulzer (Deutschland) Pumpen GmbH in Bruchsal, Germany

November 18-20, 2015 saw further performance tests being conducted on the 4.1 MW SETCON® at Sulzer (Deutschland) Pumpen GmbH in Bruchsal/Germany. Similar to the tests at Elin Motoren GmbH in Weiz/Austria, the complete powertrain including boiler feed water pump was put through its paces here.

And once again the electro-mechanical differential system proved its excellent capabilities, efficiency, and reliability. All the customer’s requirements were met to PCK Raffinerie GmbH’s complete satisfaction and the professional cooperation between the companies involved was also demonstrated.

Local and international customers from the energy, industry, and oil and gas sectors also had the opportunity to gain an impression of the SETCON® benefits over these few days. All those who attended the event were impressed with its performance and agreed that the SETCON® is an ideal solution for efficient and reliable control.
