The difference between frequency converter and power saver

- Jan 14, 2019-

Power saver is different from frequency converter mainly because

   First, frequency conversion technology is only one of many power-saving technologies. Power-saving technologies include technologies such as regulated current limiting, power factor compensation, phase-controlled power regulation, frequency conversion, chopping, filtering, and energy feedback. For the power saver adopting the frequency conversion principle, the frequency converter is only a unit in the power saver;

Second, the development and design of Power Saver takes into account various control requirements of the application site, and has various control functions that facilitate field operation, such as temperature and pressure closed-loop control;

Third, in many industrial sites, direct wiring installation of the inverter does not meet electrical specifications, and it is easy to cause various safety accidents. Installing a complete set of power saver can reduce the occurrence of accidents;

Fourth, the R&D design of Power Saver fully considers the safety protection of the built-in inverter, and sets the lightning protection circuit, overvoltage protection circuit and fault alarm function to avoid accidental damage of the inverter itself.

Fifth, according to the actual needs of the production site, the power saver generally has a high-performance bypass system built in, and in the case of unexpected failure of the speed control unit, the on-site production can be guaranteed smoothly.

Sixth, it is well known that the frequency converter will generate certain harmonics during the working process. In many production sites, a large amount of harmonic interference often causes equipment malfunction and even damage. When developing and designing the power saver, large-scale power saving Enterprises generally install harmonic filtering devices inside the power saver for the harmonics of the site, and filter out most of the harmonics in situ, which is crucial for the customer's safe production.
