Variable Speed Drives
Variable Speed Drives (VSDs) - also commonly known as Variable Frequency Drives or Invertors - are used to control and vary the speed of an alternating current (AC) induction motors.
Traditionally - when using motors to drive pumps, fans and compressors - dampers or valves are used to control the fluid flow resulting in wasted energy. An energy efficient solution is to use a VSD to enable the motor to respond to the changing flow requirement, and therefore make considerable electricity savings. Reducing the speed of a motor to 80% could reduce running costs by as much as 50%.
