Variable speed inverter drives: the online movie

Mitsubishi produces energy waste video

Related tags: Energy

To inform industry about the energy that is being wasted by underusing variable speed inverter drives, Mitsubishi Electric has developed an online video.

Inverters have been available for more than 30 years, yet there remain many driven machines in industry that do not have them fitted. Matt Handley, who narrates the video, says: “I estimate up to 70% of the machines I see in UK production plants do not use an inverter with their drive motor. If fitted, most suitable applications would achieve payback in well under a year, then carry on saving energy for years to come.

“I think the trouble is that the decision to not fit inverters is often made by non-technical people. So we at Mitsubishi Electric have come up with the new demonstrator, which shows energy saving in a simple and practical way. Delve a little deeper and you get the science behind the savings, which is summed up by the Cube Law.”

In the video Handley uses the demo rig at Mitsubishi’s Hatfield site to show how much energy is saved.
