Nidec ASI - head of the Nidec Industrial Solutions platform belonging to the Nidec Group – is presenting its new medium-voltage variable frequency drive at ADIPEC
The new VFD AFE transformerless medium-voltage drives of the SVFH series are characterised by extremely high efficiency and can be connected quickly and directly to the grid.
By eliminating the transformer, Nidec has been able to make the drives 30 per cent more compact and about 60 per cent lighter than solutions incorporating a transformer, reducing not only energy consumption but also the use of metals difficult to dispose of such as copper and iron.
The ultimate goal of the new solution presented at ADIPEC is that of guaranteeing maximum efficiency, maximising the transfer of electricity from the grid to the load and vice versa. In fact, the VDF AFE is able to perform regenerative braking of the motor load, power factor correction and regeneration. In this way, the drive can send the electricity back to the grid without having to dissipate it, thus eliminating any waste.
Another important innovation in the VFD AFE is connectivity. In fact, these drives come with a dedicated app featuring a simple and intuitive interface which can be installed on any smartphone making it possible for the user to monitor system operation, schedule maintenance and guarantee immediate interventions even in remote mode, simplifying use for all operators, even the least expert.
