Motor Driven Systems Conference 2012 - call for papers

13 February 2012

The inaugural Motor Driven Systems Conference was staged in November of last year, and following a detailed post-show review by the five Trade Association Stakeholders – BCAS, BEAMA, BPMA, FETA, GAMBICA - it has been agreed to develop a follow-up event for this year. Again scheduled to take place in November (7 and 8) at Solihull, the programme will continue to press home the importance of adopting a systems approach to motor driven apparatus for optimum energy efficiency.

However, this year there will be a far greater emphasis on delivering  a comprehensive programme of Case Studies; real life examples of how industry and commerce are saving significant amounts of money through the proven and successful application of 'energy efficient motor driven systems'.

Plant managers, engineering staff and financial heads within end-user organisations find enormous value in learning how others are developing increased efficiencies across their operations, and so this approach will form an important aspect of the 2012 event. 

This Motor Driven Systems conference will provide a forum to discuss and debate the latest developments on the impact of electrical motor systems on energy and the environment.  The energy efficiency policies and programmes adopted and planned, and the technical and commercial advances made in the application of energy-efficient motor systems will also be addressed.

The conference will include sessions where key representatives from the UK government together with end-user organisations, product manufacturers and technical experts will present their views.

To ensure the continued success of the conference, the Steering Committee is now inviting the submission of paper abstracts on the following key topics.

All papers shall address existing, new and future developments and shall not be of a strictly commercial nature.  The key areas to be addressed are as follows:-

1. Regulatory Affairs
The latest information from the Motor, Pump,  Fan, Compressor and Controls industry on the various international standards that are currently being, or have been developed, with an influence on energy usage and the resultant financial and environmental impact on end users.

2. Systems Engineering
An effective ‘systems strategy ‘ has for some time been identified as offering the largest potential energy savings in all Motor Driven Systems.  What are the best practices being used today and what are the future considerations for improved efficiency and financial return?

3. Product Technology
What are the new technologies that the Motor Driven Systems industry has developed to overcome the pressure to reduce electrical energy consumption?

4. Case Studies
Probably one of the most important elements of the conference programme is the presentation of real life MDS applications.  End users and their respective suppliers/contractors/integrators will illustrate the clear operational and commercial benefits of applying best practice engineering solutions to motor driven apparatus.
