They may be called by different names – AC Drives, VFDs, inverters, adjustable speed drives, variable speed drives, variable freq drives or microdrives, but no matter what you call them – they accomplish the same thing and that is to adjust the motor speed to match output requirements and reduce energy costs by 10 to 50 percent.
If you have an AC motor drive application that doesn’t need to run at full speed all the time, then you can reduce energy costs by controlling the motor with a variable frequency drive. VFDs allow you to match the speed of the motor to the requirements of your process. This means that variable speed drives consume less energy when your load requirements are less than full speed. This is an ideal solution for HVAC applications.
Because variable speed drives gradually ramp the motor up to operating speed sudden and abrupt starting of the motor is avoided. This reduces the stress on the motor and extends the life of the motor and reduces the burden on other power components.
