Abstract: Constant speed motor-driven systems consume more than half of the electrical energy used in most Anny facilities. Increased electrical costs and attention to environmental issues have provided an incentive to convert these systems to adjustable speed, to match motor speed efficiently to the required load. This is done by using electronic adjustable speed drives (ASDs). ASDs can provide significant energy savings and reliable operation when properly selected and applied. They have the potential to reduce energy consumption by over 50 percent compared with constant speed operation for many fan and pump applications. The technology has been successfully demonstrated at the Madigan Anny Medical Center (MAMC), Fort Lewis, WA, where over 50 ASDs were installed on variable-air-volume fan systems.
