EXonomy analysis for the Inter-domain comparison of electric and pneumatic drives

First author:
Elvira Rakova, TU Dresden, IFD, Germany

Today the selection of drive technology for realizing of moving tasks is made by comparing of investment and energy costs in general. Pneumatic drives are characterized by their low purchase price, but at the same time they show high energy consumption in a comparison with electric drives. This general evaluation leads to the point, that in many cases the optimum drive structure for a certain handling task can’t be found regarding functionality and efficiency. To reach that goal, the dynamic, energy and costs characteristics of the actuator have to be observed and summarized. In this paper the EXonomy analysis is presented as a base for the inter-domain comparison of electric and pneumatic drives. Developed EXonomy approach enables the objective analysis and comparison of electric and pneumatic systems within 3 steps.
