Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


A database was developed on electric motor systems in the framework of the Competitive Support to the Commission. The database (DB) of electric motor systems will be used as a tool to be made available to the European utilities for carrying out demand side management (DSM) programmes as a new service to a competitive electricity market.
The informatic work required the development of a stand alone database of all the standard and high efficiency electric motors collected from manufacturers catalogues (All Motor DB), development of the Select Motor Application (for economic evaluation, load coverage, heating, electric consumption and energy savings and money savings) and development of the EEM Help and Tutor on-line (with educational and guiding capabilities).
