The Disruptive Innovation of VFD and PMAC Motors

VFD, motor strategies for energy efficiency CSE Mag, January 21, 2015 Motors get no respect. Although they’re present in many of the systems that we design and they often drive the overall energy usage profile of a building, they usually end up as an afterthought. Traditionally, mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP), and fire protection designs for
