When discussing energy savings and variable frequency drives (VFD) the attention often focuses on a centrifugal fan or pump application. However, you should not overlook other applications which also have large potential energy savings and energy recovery. Applications involving regeneration, power factor correction, common bus applications or a combination of the three can also quickly achieve a significant reduction in energy use.

The paper below provides detailed insight into other application areas where VFD's provide substantial energy savings.
