Help Customers Save Energy & Money with Power Drive Systems

New study shows major savings potential with power drive systems on commercial pumps

Webinar recording

While adding variable speed capability in commercial buildings is not a new idea, a new analysis confirms major energy and cost savings is available by pairing those products with a power drive system (PDS) – regardless of a pump’s load variability. A PDS combines an electric motor, adjustable speed controls and sensors that provide feedback to the equipment, allowing the equipment to slow down or speed up to meet current demand. This idea and the added flexibility a PDS can provide may be even more important as we move forward in uncertain times.

Trade press article — Plant Engineering

End users desiring speed and/or torque control often buy variable-frequency drives (VFDs) to modify existing applications where a standard induction motor is in place. Frequently, they try to control costs by using that existing standard induction motor. Before taking that path, however, it is best to consider a few areas of concern with the approach.

Induction Motor Speed Control Basics

Webinar recording

Induction motors are most often applied to what are essentially constant speed drive applications. However, the use of induction motors in variable speed applications continues to grow, primarily due to technology advances in power electronics. This webinar will review speed control basics for induction machines.

Article

We all have that occasional customer who got a “deal” at an auction: a compressor, or lathe, or wood-working equipment, only to discover when he started to install it that this equipment has a three-phase motor and only single-phase power is available. You know that you are about to be called upon to “convert” that piece of equipment, and you probably realize that it’s going to cost you more than you can charge.
