Torque - The Drive Podcast

Torque - The drive podcast offers drive technology to go

In Drehmoment – Der Antriebspodcast, the first podcast which is all about drive technology, trade journalist Robert Weber talks to drive experts, plant operators, scientists and technicians about future technologies and the people who drive them. The episodes are all about innovative solutions for new and familiar applications, legal requirements for drive technology and new tasks for smart drive systems. From intelligent drives, artificial intelligence and machine learning to the European Green Deal and the challenges that a smart grid poses for modern drive technology: In over 20 episodes so far – most of them in German, industry experts evaluate technical developments and talk about the advantages and disadvantages of different solutions.

Danfoss engineers Jörg Dannehl and Holger Schmidt kick things off in the very first episode of Torque – The Drive Podcast. They explain how an AC drive learns and what changes condition-based monitoring brings to the world of drive technology. The idea is that the AC drive is becoming ever smarter thanks to new developments. It no longer simply controls the motor, but also detects faults. After commissioning, the intelligent drive learns the typical patterns of the plant, defines the normal state and starts monitoring as soon as it has been trained with sufficient data. Listen to this episode or any of the other episodes and take some learnings into your everyday work.

Energy crisis: incentive for more efficiency?

The drive podcast Torque is about the energy crisis.

It is July 2022. At the moment, we are concerned about the gas storage levels. We are concerned about the energy supply in the coming fall and winter months. The supply side has us firmly in its grip. By contrast, most discussions touch only superficially on the demand side.

It is therefore essential that we talk about energy – and not just nuclear power, coal and LNG. That’s why we’ve launched a special podcast series. Our hypothesis: Industry itself can do much more to reduce its dependence – with investments in energy efficiency and electrification.

In this podcast season, we go on an energy efficiency journey – from green hydrogen to storage technology to DC grids in industry. To this end, we have invited experts to explain how the industry must position itself technologically for the coming years and what should be done in terms of energy policy.

In Torque – The Drive Podcast, drive experts discuss the role of drive technology in a Green Restart: How does an energy self-sufficient wastewater treatment plant work?

The wastewater treatment plant of tomorrow already exists today. It is located in Aarhus, Denmark and is inspiring water management worldwide. Hear how Claus Homann and Mads Warming converted an existing wastewater treatment plant into one of the most advanced wastewater facilities in the world.

Digital transformation: With more intelligence to better solutions

Condition-based monitoring from Danfoss Drives

Drives today are more than simple frequency controllers. In the powertrain, they are characterized by high connectivity and are important elements in modern automation systems. They act as sensors and sensor hubs; they analyze, store and process data.

In Torque – The Drive Podcast, drive experts discuss the role of drive technology for digital transformation: How and why does an AC drive learn? A new kind of maintenance: What intelligence does condition-based maintenance require? The answers can be found in Torque – The Drive Podcast.

Data must be turned into meaningful and well-understood information in order to get more intelligence into the production processes in the next step. Hear how plant operators, drive specialists and software companies work together to get the job done.
