Variable Speed Drives: Systems and Integration

SKU: ELVSAI0CENDuration: 60 Minutes

When variable speed drives (VSDs) are used in industrial applications, they usually are not used by themselves. Although single motors and single controllers are sometimes used in isolated applications, the more usual application is one in which many motors and many controllers are interlinked into a larger automated system that includes many types of processes. This course will examine the ways in which VSDs and automated systems are linked together.
