August 2018 Louisiana User Group
Introduction to Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs)
About Our Topic:
We’re going back to basics, as our August User Group will be an introduction to Variable Frequency Drives, or VFDs. A VFD is a type of motor controller that drives an electric motor by varying the frequency and voltage supplied to the electric motor. Some benefits of using VFDs are reduced energy consumption, and energy costs, and longer equipment life and reduced maintenance.
Join us as we discuss the basics of VFDs, and VFD applications.
