Is Connecting A Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) Onto A Single-Phase Motor Possible?

Feb 8, 2021 9:15:00 AM

Topic: industrial pump prevent industrial pump from needing repair pump repair control, motor and pump service center

The use of 3-phase motors is commonplace but sometimes using a 3-phase motor is unsuitable or one is just not available.  A single-phase motor will just have to do.  

The one thing that they both have in common is that, sometimes, the motors will require a speed adjustment for whatever application they are positioned for.  To do this, a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) is needed.

Topic: industrial pump prevent industrial pump from needing repair pump repair control, motor and pump service center

Design and innovation is alive and well and there are some areas of industrial technology that have seen exponential growth and development in 2020.

Given the current state of affairs, that would be rather difficult to conceive. But thanks to the fourth industrial revolution, it would seem that there are several areas between tech and manufacturing that are about to go through some significant changes. And changes for the better.

So, for the purpose of this post, let's take a look at just exactly what the fourth industrial revolution is and how it is affecting the trends of today's current electric motor market.

Understanding How to Measure a Pump’s Performance

Topic: industrial pump prevent industrial pump from needing repair pump repair control, motor and pump service center

Pumps operate mainly through converting electrical power into motion. The performance of a pump can be measured using 3 main analytical models; flow rate (Q), head (h), and efficiency (n). These 3 models allow users to gain an overall sense of how the pump is performing during operation.

There are a few ancient principles that played roles in automation since the mechanical age. Automation did not have to wait for electronic or electrical systems. The concept of automation as a wish or fantasy dates back as early as 762 BC. In Homer's epic poem "The Iliad," the God of blacksmiths, Hephaestus, was depicted as inventing automatons, self-directed machines, to speed the manufacture of weapons, machines replacing human labor. Human beings have held the idea of automation in our collective consciousness for thousands of years. Inventors were working on mechanical forms of automation for centuries.

The VFD (variable frequency drive) has become the "go to" technology for plant engineers seeking an energy efficient solution for controlling electric motor speed and torque. As this informative article from ABB points out, a VFD can reduce energy consumption by as much as 60% by reducing the amount of energy drawn by a motor. Small reductions in speed result in significant energy savings.

Avoiding the "Run to Failure" With System Pumps

A November 2017 article by Pumps and Systems points out that many industrial plant maintenance crews have become experts at corrective pump maintenance procedures. Replacing seals and bearings or the entire pump itself often becomes routine for these workers because of sheer repetition.

Plant maintenance teams need to be able to monitor flow rate, temperatures, and pressures and know how to interpret that data to prevent pump problems before they occur. The lack of adequate sensors on many pumps prevents any detection of the potential pump hazards in the system. Even when information is available from sensors, lack of training could cause a failure to recognize a problem in time to take action.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Industrial Electrical Control Panel?

Industrial electrical control panels fall under two categories:

1. Units that contain components that control major industrial production systems, such as presses, cranes, conveyors and refrigeration units

2. Units that contain components that control necessary nearby environmental systems, such as lighting, HVAC and pumps

When power or control components, such as motor controllers, wires, relays and switches, fail to work properly, production immediately slows or screeches to a halt resulting in lost revenues and high on-site emergency repair call costs. For these reasons, it’s critical that you hire a trained technical professional to perform a preventative inspection and repair work if any of the following conditions currently exist in your factory:
