An investigation of the electrical energy savings obtained by reducing the terminal voltage of induction motors when they are not loaded or only partially loaded is presented. The purpose is to obtain information to help decide whether to install an energy saving device in plants using induction motors. At no-load operation, the saving can be as high as 50… (More)
