The ideal reduced voltage starting system for starting motors on generator sets is one that allows start current to be reduced to the minimum level required by the motor to start the connected load, and controls the application of that start current to gradually apply load at a rate the generator can respond to.
A recent trend shows a significant push toward using variable frequency drives (VFDs) for improved pump efficiency, particularly when throttling valves have been used to control flow. However, there is increasing evidence that for many pumping applications where real-time flow control is not necessary, VFDs are not the most energy efficient solution.
Benshaw has launched a new series of intelligent, multi-pump control AC drives, with UL/cUL ratings from 7.5 to 800HP. The Benshaw H2P Series drives are capable of optimizing up to eight pumps as a coordinated pump control system.
