VFD testing and Analysis
Solid state electronic AC motor drives are becoming increasingly more commonplace within industrial and commercial facilities. They control air handlers, chillers, pumps, conveyors, machine tools, mixers, draw lines, and numerous other applications once considered either strictly DC applications, or constant speed.
The increased usage of variable-frequency drives (VFDs) presents the maintenance and service community with both the opportunity and challenge of learning to maintain, troubleshoot, and operate this equipment.
Motors powered by variable frequency (VFD) or variable speed (VSD) drives require additional testing and analysis to ensure the high voltage stresses are not weakening the motor’s insulation system or the drive components. When a motor drive goes down, production often grinds to a halt. You need a smart and expert engineer to find and resolve the problem quickly.
