AC vector drives are also known as VFDs which stands for variable frequency drives
. They control the motor speed which happens through varying the frequency of the supply of electrical power to the motor. AC vector drives utilize a complex algorithm that controls the magnetizing and torque-producing components of the stator current. AC vector drives are used largely in HVAC
applications. They are used in a wide range of applications like air handlers, tower fans, chillers and pumps. AC drives have their advantages over DC drives. First, they are cheaper and more readily available. They are also lighter and smaller than DC motors. Usually, AC vector drives work better in top-speed operations that go above 2500 rpm as they have no commutators or brushes. Inlet air flanges and cooling towers offer cooling air for a wide speed range. Looking for the best AC vector drives in the market?
