Using ABB's medium voltage drives for speed and torque control of these applications offers many advantages, including:
  • High power and outstanding reliability increases the availability of the plant and decreases maintenance costs
  • Smooth torque over the entire speed range reduces noise and vibration levels, which minimizes mechanical stress
  • Better efficiency, particularly at partial load, results in lower energy costs
  • No inrush currents and voltage drops during starting
  • Improved speed control and process optimization
  • Enhanced operating flexibility
  • Regeneration of rotating power and breaking capability
  • Better dynamic performance during starting and during supply grid turbulences
