In addition, he says, a-c drives can equal or exceed performance of comparable brush-type d-c drives.
A-C drives offer tight control without the expense of a tachometer.
For higher performance, an open-loop, flux-vector a-c inverter - an upgrade of the standard pulse-width-modulated (PWM) a-c inverter - provides an operating range of 100:1, with speed regulation of 0.5% over a 10:1 speed range without a tachometer.
One manufacturer that makes a-c drives standard on extruders for up to 75 hp is Crown Machine Div., West Chicago, Ill.
A-C inverter drives may be more economical to run than brush-type d-c drives because of their reportedly favorable power factor, particularly at lower speeds.
