Why Using Multiple VFDs on a Pump Station Makes Sense

What is a Variable Frequency Drive?
Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) are a type of motor controller that drives an electric motor by varying the frequency and voltage of its power supply. VFDs also have the capacity to control ramp-up and ramp-down of the motor during start or stop. In addition, drives integrate networking and diagnostic capabilities to better control performance and increase productivity.
Benefits of Using Multiple Variable Frequency Drives
For systems that require multiple pumps, installing multiple VFDs can provide many benefits. VFDs typically control one pump at a time, leaving systems with multiple pumps susceptible to inefficiency, damage, and even system failure. By installing a VFD to control each pump, you:
 Improve overall performance of the system
 Reduce energy costs
 Improve system efficiency
 Promote environmental benefits
