Motors and Motor Drives
Motors and drives are prevalent in all corners of industry, powering conveyor systems, pumps, fans, industrial machine tools, compressors and a vast array of other processes. There is a massive range of motors available for every application, including DC Shunt motors, compound motors, synchronous motors, induction motors, brushed and brushless and many more.
A motor drive is the electronic device that harnesses and controls the electrical energy that is being supplied to a specific electrical motor. The motor drive feeds electricity into the motor in varying amounts and at differing frequencies, controlling the electric motor’s speed and torque. Motor drives can also control the ramp-up and ramp-down of a motor during stop and start sequences reducing the mechanical stress in motor control applications such as elevators.
Motor drives are the cornerstone of modern automated industry playing a key role in the control of pumps, compressors, fans and within the renewable energy sector such as within tidal and wind power harvesting devices. Motor drives are known by various names including AC drives, adjustable speed drives, adjustable frequency drives, variable speed drives, frequency converters, inverters and power converters.
