Description

This online electrical training course will introduce you to variable frequency drives (VFDs) and the reasons for their application in controlling the rotational speed of motors and other electrical equipment. While most control circuits used in industrial or commercial applications still use mechanical operating systems, the application of VFD's is increasing as a way to reduce power consumption and other operating costs.  

This Variable Frequency Drives Electrical Training Course Will Cover:

  • VFD theory, operation and applications
  • New installations
  • Startup/feedback controls
  • Control status, monitoring and troubleshooting
  • Maintaining/servicing VFDs
