AC drives are electronic devices which change the frequency and in-turn control the operation of an induction motor. The drive is primarily used to control the torque/speed of the motor. The arrival of the drive in the market has led to a tremendous increase in the productivity by monitoring and saving energy and extending the life of equipment. The advantages of AC drives are as follows:

  1. The speed/torque of the motor can be easily controlled
  2. Start and stop can be performed easily (smooth)
  3. Machine standardization can take place
  4. The direction of rotation can be altered with ease

AC drive find application in a wide range of industries like oil & gas, mining, and waste water management etc. The CAGR for the industry is close to 8% during the period 2017-2022
