Micron Motor Control – Micron Electrical Engineers design, develop, and install, sophisticated motor control systems controlled by variable frequency drives to adjust motor speed and in turn save energy. Complex control systems can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in power costs. By reducing the operating frequency of the motor (using Variable speed drives) we reduce power consumption resulting in efficient plant operation.
Electric motor systems are by far the most important type of load in industry, using about 70% of the consumed electricity. In the tertiary sector although not so relevant, electric motor systems use one third of the consumed electricity. It is their wide use that makes motors particularly attractive for the application of efficiency improvements. Variable Speed Drives have been identified as having the most significant energy savings potential.
The loads in which the use of speed controls in electric drives can bring the largest energy savings are the fluid handling applications (pumps, compressors and fans) with variable flow requirements. Other applications which can benefit from the application of VSDs include conveyors, machine tools, lifts, centrifugal machines, etc
