Abstract: Due to the development of technology in the world, energy consumption is increasing day by day. The decrease in fuel reserves and the damage caused by fuel oil to the environment have also led to the search for new energy sources. In particular, energy consumption in the industry has a large proportion of total energy consumption. In this respect, the design of the machine tools and the selection of the actuators used in them are of great importance. Recycling of braking energy has gained importance in recent years. In this way, great energy savings are achieved through using energy more beneficially. In this study, using two cases, a method for servo motor selection is presented through machine tool examples. With this method, it is aimed to reduce the production cost by providing optimum motor selection. Significant energy saving was achieved by using the capacitor module.
