Editor's Note: This is the first in a three-part series about Variable Frequency Drives. Before I get started with this rambling about Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), I wish to explain that this technical article is definitely NOT intended for the "drive techs" out there among you. It is intended to educate that poor, confused soul who might be timid when it comes to dealing with these high tech appliances - just as I once was. I hope that this helps you.
