Torque - The Drive Podcast

Torque - The drive podcast offers drive technology for the ears

In Drehmoment – Der Antriebspodcast, the first podcast 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 more than 15 episodes so far, industry experts evaluate technical developments and talk about the pros and cons of possible solutions.

Danfoss engineers Jörg Dannehl and Holger Schmidt kick things off in the very first episode of Drehmoment – der Antriebspodcast. They explain how an inverter learns and what changes with condition-based monitoring in drive technology. The idea is that the frequency inverter is becoming ever smarter thanks to new developments and no longer just controls the drive, but also detects faults. After commissioning, the intelligent inverter 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 or any of the other episodes and take new knowledge back to your everyday work.

Digital transformation: With more intelligence to better solutions

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 inverter learn? What will drive the factory in the future? What role does OPC UA play in drive technology? A new kind of maintenance: What intelligence does condition-based maintenance require? The answers can be found in the individual episodes of Drehmoment – Der Antriebspodcast. Listen in.

Green Restart: energy efficiency, electrification and sustainability

Smart technologies for greater energy efficiency, greater use of renewable energies in the industrial environment, and rapidly advancing electrification and hybridization offer important prospects for efficient and sustainable business.

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? What does ‘hybridization’ actually mean in the industry? And what will change as a result of the next stages of the EU Ecodesign Directive for engines? The answers can be found in the individual episodes of Drehmoment – Der Antriebspodcast. Listen in.
