Electrical Drive Design with the Digital Twin (Discussionpaper)

Standardised Submodel of the Asset Administration Shell

Representatives from mechanical engineering and the process industry as well as the fields of classification and standardisation have joined forces in a ZVEI working group to drive forward the realization of "Drive 4.0" with the cooperation of university research. This discussion paper now presents the results achieved and explains the implementation of the electric drive as an Industrie 4.0 component during the design and configuration phase. 

The optimal design of an electric drive is used to find a compact drive or drive system that is optimally designed in terms of speed, torque, positioning accuracy and efficiency, which is not only lighter, but also performs better and saves energy.
