In this video, IDS engineer, Blaise Ford demonstrates the ABB Inverter Flux Optimisation feature.
ABB Inverter Flux Optimisation
For this demonstration, we are using our Balloon Machine demonstration rig. The rig has an ABB inverter, which drives a motor that is connected to a fan. We will switch on the motor, let it settle and you will be able to see the current drawn on the ammeter, which will represent the power consumed. We will then switch on the Flux Optimisation feature and you will be able to see what happens to the current.
As we switch on the motor you can see we are taking approximately 1 amp from the supply, as Blaise switches on the Flux Optimisation feature you can see the ammeter drop to about 0.8 amp, that’s a 20% reduction! This is free energy saving utilising the ABB Inverter Flux Optimisation feature.
