Recent years have seen an increase in high-speed electric compression for Oil & Gas applications where high-speed electric motors drive compressors directly without intermediate gears. To date induction machines have been the predominant workhorse of the industry. The permanent-magnet machine technology provides an alternative that promises a highly reliable and robust system design, especially in applications where motor and compressor are fully integrated and share the same process gas environment. This paper provides an update on the recent progress in developing the permanent magnet technology for Oil & Gas applications in which the process gas may contain corrosive elements.
