Danfoss Inverter - Save Your Power

I attended a training on Wednesday. It was a training about inverter conducted by Danfoss. Danfoss is a big company based in Denmark producing various products. The trainer (product manager) was really well prepared. We were given a file complete with colourful brochures and slides as well as papers to jot down note. The introduction of the presentation was very well define. The presenter informed us the flow of presentation together with the expected time (in minutes) for each topic. All together 120 minutes (2 hours). That's good. At least we know when the training will end.

The training commenced with a short 5 minute video introducing Danfoss. It was a very impressive and informative presentation. They really have state of the art technology (which utilizes efficient and effective robots) to manufacture inverters as well as other products.

Inverter can save power and money (reduces maximum power demand). In addition to that, it can lengthened the life span of your motor and other equipments. It reduces start current and reduces start torque by the square of the current reduction. Inverter actually reduced voltage starting attempts in a motor and avoid it to start instantaneously. Inverter will slowly and gradually supply the voltage and current to a motor until a maximum level.

There are more to discuss about inverters. Inverters are really impressive in saving power. A lot of process plant are installing and utilizing inverters. I shall discuss more about it in a few days time.
