vector control VFD performs better in the areas of precision control than V/F or scalar control VFD.

How do I find the Full Load Amps for a 380 V motor, 3-phase, 200 HP, 1.15 service factor in order to correctly size a VFD?

I think you can refer to the name plate of the motor. When you want to apply the VFD, just remember that the power of VFD should be equal or larger than that of motor. That's enough.

Dear Mr Suraj,

First you run the existing system as it is for a fixed amount of time.Note down the energy consumed.

Then fix the vfd in the system, and run the system for the same amount of time and note down the energy consumed. Difference between the energy consumptions is the energy saving.

I think just running VFD in the system for a time. Then compare the power consumed with the rated power of ac motor. Then you can know if the energy is saved.

Of course, it depends on the exact load information. For example, if the load is under full running, there is no energy saving, even will consume more power because you have used vfd. But if the load is not under full running, you can find the obvious energy saving.

Hope it helps.
