This course addresses the choices available and relevant issues regarding the use of adjustable speed drives (ASD) with electric motors, and demonstrates the energy cost savings and other benefits made possible by this technology. In this course we explore how adjustable speed drives work and ways to assess the savings. Variable frequency drives (VFD) are the most common speed control method and is the major focus of the course content which will cover the benefits of pulse width modulation technology and well as discovering and mitigating harmful electromagnetic interference that can cause motor failure. Additional information on evaluating and specifying VFDs is provided. This course is coordinated by the NEEA Industrial Training project and is co-sponsored by Snohomish County PUD, Clallam County PUD, City of McCleary, City of Port Angeles, Food Northwest, Grays Harbor PUD, Jefferson County PUD, Mason County PUD, McCleary Light & Power, Pacific County PUD No. 2, Puget Sound Energy, Seattle City Light, Tacoma Public Utilities, Tanner Electric, Bonneville Power Administration, and Washington State University-Extension Energy Program.
