A variable frequency drive is used for adjusting a flow or pressure to the actual demand. It controls the frequency of the electrical power supplied to a pump or fan. Significant power savings can be achieved when using a VFD.
A variable frequency drive is a system for controlling the rotational speed of an alternating current electric motor. It controls the frequency of the electrical power supplied to the motor. A variable frequency drive is a specific type of adjustable-speed drive. Variable-frequency drives are also known as adjustable-frequency drives (AFD), variable-speed drives (VSD), AC drives, or inverter drives.
Variable frequency drives are widely used on pumps and machine tool drives, compressors and in ventilations systems for large buildings. Variable frequency motors on fans save energy by allowing the volume of air moved to match the system demand.
Reasons for employing automatic frequency control can both be related to the functionality of the application and for saving energy. For example, automatic frequency control is used in pump applications where the flow is matched either to volume or pressure. The pump adjusts its revolutions to a given set point via a regulating loop. Adjusting the flow or pressure to the actual demand reduces power consumption. Benefits include improved motor efficiency, sensorless vector control gives a better speed range taking care of motor slip, lower maintenance costs, ultra low motor noise and reduction in motor start-up stress.
