VFD | Variable Frequency Drive Working

Variable Frequency Drive Working A variable frequency drive (VFDs) uses solid state electronic circuits to provide a signal to a motor to control its acceleration, deceleration, direction of rotation, torque, and horsepower. Drives do this by converting a fixed frequency (either 50 or 60 Hz) AC power source, to a variable frequency power supply to …

3 Phase Motor Overheating Reasons

Overheating is a major cause of insulation and bearing failure. 3 phase motor overheating reasons are as under: Line-Caused Overheating There are four causes of line-caused overheating: overvoltage, low voltage, unbalanced voltage, and a high-resistance connection. Overvoltage: Overvoltage can cause a normally loaded motor to overheat. NEMA standard specifications allow motors a voltage deviation of …

VFD Working Principle

Hi friends, in this article, I am discussing the vfd working principle and hope you will find it very help full and informative. The squirrel-cage induction motors are the most common three-phase motors used in industrial applications. The preferred method of speed control for squirrel-cage induction motors is to vary the frequency of the supply voltage, and the system …
