Some doubts regarding VSDs
Posted 04 December 2005 - 09:10 AM
I am having the following questions regarding VSD pls.clear them.
(1)Can capacitors be installed at output of VFDs ?Why?
(2)Which part of the VSD is most temperature sensitive?
(3)calculations of energy saving with VSDs.

1) Capacitors must not be installed on the output of a VSD because the output voltage is made up of a high frequency PWM switching waveform. Connecting a capacitor would result in very high currents into the capacitor which would damage both the capacitor and the VSD.
2) Depends on the design, but as the ambient temperature is increased above 40 degrees C, you need to derate the drive to prevent the power devices from being overheated.
3) Very dependant on the load curve etc.
