Energy efficiency labeling requirements for electric motors in the People’s Republic China
The two recent successive announcements with numbers 136 and 137 of the ELAC (Energy Label Administration of China) re-regulate the energy efficiency labeling of electric motors in the People’s Republic China. In addition, the update of GB standard 18613-2006 with number GB 18613-2012 was implemented without transition. Currently, the old label is accepted still, but for the next annual report to the ELAC, the current standard must be specified. For this reason, the type of tests must be carried out according to GB 18613-2012 as soon as possible.
Currently, the energy efficiency labeling is valid for electric drives for 3-phase asynchronous motors. In the future, synchronous motors with permanent magnets and 3-phase induction motors will be affected also.
