  • Adjustable speed induction motors (IMs) drives based on voltage source inverters (VSIs) have become rather popular and widespread, owing to their capability of enabling a substantial improvement of energy utilisation, compared to fixed speed motors directly connected to the main supply. Since inverters produce additional losses in the drive, some concerns about the determination of the overall energy efficiency of the system obviously arise. Therefore, a proper method to assess the efficiency… CONTINUE READING
