What is the standard motor insulation system?

The development of the squirrel cage induction motor, with its associated insulation system, has generally been for sinusoidal supplies. Its design is well proven and inherently robust leading to long reliable service with minimum maintenance. Practical life of insulation systems, and hence motor life, can be many years with ultimate failure likely to be through […]

What is a pulse width modulation Inverter Drive?

Voltage source PWM inverter drives are the most common type of low voltage inverter drives that are currently in use. The process of obtaining the required frequency involves converting the incoming alternating voltage to DC by means of a rectifier, smoothing the DC in an intermediate DC link with capacitive energy storage, then inverting back to an alternating current. […]

How much does it cost to run an electric motor?

When buying a motor –driven system, it is much more important to consider its running costs that its purchase price. To compare purchase prices only is a false economy and overlooks the considerable financial benefit of lower lifetime costs. Any capital saved by not investing in the most efficient motor and control system can be […]

Quantum Controls visit Norway for Oil Conference

Quantum Controls were visiting Norway last month at one of the most important and largest oil conferences around the world. At the annual Modification Conference 2013 (MOD) we were granted a fantastic opportunity to meet with representatives of Norwegian operators and their main contractors.                   Mod2013 was […]
