    Characteristics of VFD

    1 Electromagnetic Design

    For a common asynchronous motor, major performance parameters considered in design include the overload capacity, start performance ,efficiency and power. As for a VFD, its breakdown slip is inversely proportional to the power frequency, and it can start directly when the breakdown slip is near 1, therefore, the overload capacity and start performance doesn’t need to consider, the key problem to be solved is how to improve the adaptability of the motor to non sinusoidal power supplies. Methods are as follows:

    Using VFD for single phase motor

    Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), aka variable speed drive (VSD), generally it's using for controlling 3-phase AC motor in variable speeds. It's important to know, control 1-phase motor speed by a VFD may cause overheat of the motor, as well as the service life. It's recommended to upgrade the motor to three phase AC motor, which you can also connect the 3-phase motor to single phase power supply by using a single phase to three phase VFD, then control the speeds. Anyway, in technical it's possible to use a VFD for single phase motor speed controls, here ATO will show you details about running a single phase motor on a VFD.

    How Does VFD Work on Air Compressor?

    It is found that the speed of air compressor motor is proportional to the actual consumed power of the air compressor. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce the motor speed in order to reduce the actual consumption of the air compressor. The use of VFD in air compressor system can realize the real time control of motor speed (output power) without changing the air compressor motor torque through the accurate coordination of electrical control and frequency control in the air compressor system. To change the compressor speed to respond to the system pressure changes and to maintain stable system pressure can realize the output of high quality air pressure according to demand.

    How to control the speed of three phase induction motor? The speed control method includes: changing the number of poles, stator voltage control, stator frequency conversion, cascade speed control, double-feed speed regulation, hydraulic coupler, electromagnetic slip clutch, etc.
    The actual speed of three phase asynchronous motor is given by n=ns (1 - s) =120f /p (1-s). It can be seen from the formula that the speed of 3 phase induction motor can be changed by the means of changing the number of induction motor’s poles "p", the slip "s" and the frequency of power supply"f".

    VFD for industrial agitator

    The traditional industrial agitator usually conducts no regulation or regulates the speed in mechanical method. The speed regulation in mechanical method will increase the loss of the industrial agitator. Meanwhile, the industrial agitator will work in fluctuating status.

The motor power of the industrial agitator in operating under the frequency conversion speed control is similar to its characteristics of the revolving speed and pump load. Using VFD for speed regulation will obtain a substantial power saving rate.

Take the motor of 1.5KW as an example, the motor employs the slowdown motor with a reduction ratio of 1:10. Through the reversing gear, the motor will change from the revolving movement into the straight line movement. Each revolving will realize one pushing action. When the incense stick goes through the discharging bucket, the stirring device for discharging will be driven with the chain drive organization while the motor is revolving. The material pushing jacket will be filled with incenses and then be extruded outside through pushing. In addition, As to the pressure(discharging quantity), the operator can adjust the revolving eccentric wheel to change the journey of the material pushing jacket and increase its discharging space, thus achieving the pressure change. Completing the whole process only needs about 0.4s, then one incense stick is finished. The VFD has been debugged for incense stick manufacturing, so as to reach the manufacturing requirements thoroughly.
