What are the components of an electric motor?
Understanding the components of a motor and how it works can show how energy wastage can occur within a business. The diagram (below) shows the various parts that make up an induction motor, from the conduit box, where the electrical input is applied (either directly from the mains/grid supply or from a VSD), to the
What is a Variable Speed Drive?
A Variable Speed Drive (VSD) is a device that can control the speed of an electric motor. Most conventional motors run at full speed only, but a VSD-equipped unit means it can run at a variable rate. This allows the motor to drive a pump or fan at a speed appropriate to the requirements of
