Usage of winding wire (2)

2016-04-17

GENERATORS & TRACTION MOTORS
Trams and locomotives use specially designed traction motors, designed to meet high demands for mechanical and thermal stress, stops and accelerations and different climates. New types of winding wire and insulation material have been utilized to comply with these special demands. Exciting solutions for traction motors are now being developed for trolley (electrical) buses.

SMALL TRANSFORMERS
Transformers are used for transforming energy and to convert power voltages. Copper wire is the primary material but aluminium is also used.

SOLAR ENERGY
Winding wire is used in solar panel inverters to convert the DC into AC and transform it to the correct primary voltage. It is also used in the pump motors for solar hot water systems

 

 

WELDING EQUIPMENT
Welding equipment uses round as well as rectangular wire and, to some extent, enamelled aluminium wire.

WHITE GOODS
Washing machines, dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, heating and cooling systems and other white goods products and household appliances are all dependent on copper.

WIND POWER
Wind power (including grids and transformers) consumes a large amount of round and rectangular winding wire. A large wind turbine can contain more than 30 tons of winding wire, depending on the technical solution.
