In ECO mode the operating point of the motor in the partial-load range is automatically adjusted and optimized. This helps to reduce motor losses.

If variable-speed drives are only deployed temporarily, they can be switched to hibernation mode.
In Bypass mode it is possible to "bypass" the inverter electrically as soon as the motor frequently operates close to its rated speed. This helps to avoid inverter losses and increase overall efficiency.

If the entire power demand in applications is distributed among several motors, a drive system can be made more energy-efficient by phased connection and disconnection via partially or fully controlled cascades in combination with inverters and motor starters.

With coupled drives, energy is exchanged via the shared DC link to minimize power losses in the system.
Reactive power compensation
The use of SINAMICS inverters with Active Line Modules reduces the capacitive and/or inductive reactive power in the machine. This dispenses with costly reactive power compensation systems.

Kinetic energy buffer
The kinetic energy available in the system shall be reused for dynamic reversing processes performed on single and multi-axis systems. A motor that is connected to the shared dc link serves as kinetic energy buffer.
Electric energy buffer
The electric energy available in the system shall be reused for dynamic reversing processes performed on single and multi-axis systems. A capacitor module that is connected to the shared dc link serves as electric energy buffer.
Optimized pulse patterns
By optimizing clock frequency and pulse pattern, SINAMICS G and S are perfectly matched to SIMOTICS motors. The benefits are optimized performance and system efficiency, reduced system losses as well as lower temperature and noise levels.

Energy usage / energy-saving counter
Energy usage is measured during operation. An energy-saving counter can be installed to indicate the cumulative energy savings during machine operation as compared to a fixed-speed application.

The recovery of braking energy enables energy savings of up to 70%, facilitates cooling of the system and ensures a more compact design.

DC link coupling with SINAMICS V20
Applications with two SINAMICS V20 inverters with the same power rating can share a common DC link in order to reuse regenerated energy..
