Inside Matrix Variable Frequency Drive Technology
Providing cost, space, and energy efficient solutions for VFD applications
• 07/26/2017 • Edit
Dear Energy Professional,
Variable frequency drives (VFDs), also known as variable speed drives (VSDs), and sometimes inverters, have benefited from many advancements since their introduction in the 1970s. During most of that time, however, the basic design of the drive remained the same, with improvements in performance, size, and cost coming mainly from advances in the drive’s semiconductor components.
Our friends at Yaskawa provided this report to show common challenges faced by conventional VFDs, and how Matrix VFD design helps eliminate harmonic problems that cause cables to overheat, circuit breakers to trip, and cause stress on upstream transformers.
When you read this case study, you will:
- Learn the advantages of Matrix VFD design
- Understand how Matrix VFDs Operate
- Discover how Matrix design provides energy savings through regeneration
If these questions intrigue you . . . if there’s anything about VFDs you think you still have to learn . . . download this FREE case study now, before your attention turns to other matters.
This report is FREE. Read it now, and learn how Matrix Variable Frequency Drive Technology can benefit your facilities and equipment.
