Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO225: New pump concept for minimized maintenance efforts

Johannes Lintzmeyer, Application Engineer, KSB SE & Co. KGaA


KSB, a German based global supplier of centrifugal pumps, is taking a new approach in cooling power electronics for wind turbines. With a new pump concept, maintenance-costs and -efforts are minimized while at the same time increasing system availability. Decades of experience in the field of converter cooling in rail vehicles helped to understand the requirements of wind power application and to realize the targeted implementation. Instead of the mechanical seals commonly used up to now, KSB is instead focusing on the seal-less concept of canned motor pumps. The design of these pumps without rolling bearings enables continuous operation for up to 30 years without the need for dismantling. A monitoring concept adapted to the possibilities in the turbine guarantee the long-term operational reliability of the pump - even offshore. The advantages of these cooling concepts are clearly visible: The absence of rolling bearings and mechanical seals, as well as the use of a motor that is almost independent of the ambient conditions, simplify the pump to an absolute minimum and thus reduce potential sources of error.
