Long cable lengths (1,000 ft to 15,000 ft) associated with submersible pump equipment have limited the effectiveness of using modern variable speed drives (VSD) due to reflected wave voltage spikes associated with the drive switching voltage transitions. In the past, drives used external filters, inductors and conditioners to keep from damaging cable and motor insulation. Extra costs associated with this equipment, as well as the custom use, limit the overall effectiveness. Variable sine-wave…
