Variable frequency drives are used in building automation, industrial, pumping, agricultural, irrigation and water/wastewater applications to control the speed of fans and pumps in these various systems.
Upgrading with VFDs is a major component of the EPA's effort to improve the efficiency of energy.
The average return of investment on the installation of a variable frequency drive is 6 months to 2 years as a result of our Competitive Pricing and an Energy Savings -- of up to 80%!
Variable Frequency Drives allow for the precise matching of the speed of motor-driven equipment to the load requirement, thereby reducing energy consumption by as much as 50%. There is no other method of AC electric motor control that allows you to accomplish this.
Energy usage in a typical office building costs the owner between $1 to $3 per square foot. Air handling systems account for approximately 25% and cooling systems for about 14% of the electricity consumed. These systems represent key focus areas for cost reduction. You have the means of reducing air handling and cooling energy costs by 20%.
For a 100,000 sq. ft. building, total savings can range from $10,000 to $30,000 every year.
The key to savings is the judicious use of variable frequency drives.
There are numerous benefits of having VFDs, to name a few:
Benefit from additional mechanical savings due to less wear on your existing equipment
Improved systems performance means Reduced Downtime
Variable speed drives result in Reduced Equipment Noise in the building
Accurate and Repeatable Control of HVAC Settings mean you won’t have frequent readjustments
Variable speed drives are “Green” and environmentally-friendly. By controlling your applications with a VFD drive from Yaskawa, you can save significant energy and greatly reduce carbon footprint and operating cost.
