Programming variable frequency drives (VFDs) to fit most industrial applications require only the most basic settings to operate the motor. Understand these 5 VFD parameter changes to optimize VFD programming to fit most motor-drive applications.
In advanced process control (APC), closed-loop multivariable control brings the inherent benefits of greater timeliness and consistency, fewer alarms and constraint violations and more effective process optimization. Multivariable control is core to most process operations. See “What is ‘real-time’ optimization?”
Size a variable-speed drive (VSD) for the application, and ask if a general-purpose drive will do or if more embedded intelligence is needed. Do you need a VSD, variable frequency drive (VFD) or adjustable speed drive (ASD)? (Trick question)
