VFD

Variable frequency drive

Specifically, what it is and when do we use it with automation and PLCs. So what exactly is a VFD? Well, it stands for Variable Frequency Drive. They are used for running an AC motor at variable speeds or let them ramp up their speed to give them a smooth startup.

It reduced downtime because gas turbines require frequent maintenance while VFDs and motors require very little maintenance. This enables more production, lower maintenance expense, and improved productivity. Accurate speed control and process control allowing the most optimum plant flow balance to be obtained.
