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.
