This work aims to reuse the electric energy used in three-phase induction motors of an industrial plastic injector for the lighting circuit of the same warehouse where the injectors are located, thus eliminating the need to use the energy of the electric company. Any resource that reuses electricity with better efficiency becomes essential today, making it a solution for industries that are thinking of saving the energy used in the productive processes in the manufacture of goods.This project uses a synchronous generator coupled to a three-phase induction motor of a plastic injector, which will reuse the electrical energy used of the induction motor to mechanically drive the synchronous generator, that will be able to generate enough electrical power in its coils for a 47-light shed lighting circuit, thus eliminating the need to use utility power, saving a portion of the energy usage costs on the monthly bill. This installation of the synchronous generator was performed on equipment of the company Moto Honda da Amazônia, which has a 24-hour operating regime for six days a week.
