660V Medium Voltage Variable Frequency Drives for Water Pumps
A pump is a machine or device for raising, transferring, or
compressing fluids. Pumps represent the largest single use of power
in industry (31%) by motor driven equipment. Process variables,
including pressure and flow of gases and liquids, have long been
regulated using mechanical clutches, throttles, and adjustable
inlet guide vanes. Pumps often operate as a variable torque load, a
load that increases as the speed increases. These mechanisms waste
energy, require frequent maintenance, and provide inaccurate
Pumps have two main categories:
1. Positive displacement pumps force a fixed volume of fluid from
inlet to discharge with each stroke or rotation. (e.g.,
reciprocating, rotary, or screw type pumps)
2. Centrifugal pumps are the biggest class of pumps, which use the
fluid's own momentum to build up pressure or head. Centrifugal
pumps use centrifugal and hydrodynamic forces to create pressure
that moves the fluid from inlet to discharge.
Pumps can also be classified by principle of operation and drive

Features of G11 matching extruder application
Open Loop Vector and V/Hz Control with Torque Compensation
Provides excellent breakaway torque for thick materials and
constant torque to maintain mixing speeds under heavy loads.
Provides early warning of damaging torque levels as a result of
seizing mixer blades.
Torque Reference programmable to an analog output
The applied mixing torque is fine tuned or adjustable for different
Preset frequency reference
Preset mixing patterns can be established for different materials.
Auto-Restart after momentary power loss
Mixing can quickly restart after fault or momentary power loss.
This keeps perishable foods from spoiling in process.
Power loss Ride-Through
The mixing process in not interrupted during brief power loss (<

A variable-frequency drive (VFD) is a system for controlling the
rotational speed of an alternating current (AC) electric motor by
controlling the frequency of the electrical power supplied to the
motor. A variable frequency drive is a specific type of
adjustable-speed drive. Variable-frequency drives are also known as
adjustable-frequency drives (AFD), variable-speed drives (VSD), AC
drives, microdrives or inverter drives. Since the voltage is varied
along with frequency, these are sometimes also called VVVF
(variable voltage variable frequency) drives.
