Reliable energy efficiency policies are being given a new lease on life by the introduction of better technology solutions.
Find the right application to match the motor need and know the conditions for using a variable frequency drive (VFD).
The use of VFDs has many benefits including improved process control, energy savings, higher reliability and reduced wear and tear.
End users desire speed and/or torque control procure and install VFDs to modify existing applications where a standard-induction motor is in place. There are a few areas of concern involving misapplication of a standard induction motor.
Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are designed to reduce energy usage by controlling the speed of the motor and can offer cost-effective benefits for plants.
Awareness and testing for potential shaft current on motors can help companies experience fewer problems with downtime and equipment failure.
How product innovations are revolutionizing pump monitoring and process control management.
Harmonics mitigation, filtering voltage spikes are two key issues.
Part of a European motor efficiency standard allows use of a variable speed drive to meet energy-saving requirements.
Electrical power enters the plant, drives the equipment, shines the lights, conditions the air, makes the coffee, and runs the printer that prepares your paycheck — and the check to pay for all this electricity. Are you getting your money's worth? Probably not.
Lately, there has been a lot of interest in the use of "intelligent" motor control centers (MCCs). But defining intelligence is not as easy as it sounds. To answer the question of intelligence, first take a look at traditional MCC technology.
