    • Adjustable Speed Drives as Applied to Centrifugal Pumps 

      Jarc, D. A.; Robechek, J. D.; Connors, D. P. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
      Centrifugal pumps are generally sized to operate at or near the best efficiency point at maximum flow. The maximum flow requirements, however, frequently occur for a very short period during the operating cycle with the ...
    • Economical Aspects of Adjustable Speed Drives in Pumping Systems 

      Hovstadius, G. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1999-05)
      Speed variations of pumps have become increasingly popular as the technology to produce variable frequency drives has progressed. Variable speed drives have many advantages compared to throttle valves when it comes to ...
    • Retrofit Installations of Adjustable Speed Drives to Conserve Energy at Industrial Facilities 

      Porcaro, C. R.; Galstaun, L. S.; Holmes, M. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      This paper is a progress report on a study funded by the Electrical Power Research Institute (EPRI). The purpose of the study is to identify and analyze existing installations that appear to offer opportunities for energy ...
    • A Study of Adjustable Speed Drive Applications for Pumps 

      Triezenberg, D. M.; Lakhavani, S. T. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      We have undertaken a survey and analysis of potential ASD applications for pumps in U.S. industry. Concentration was on the five industry segments that consume the greatest amount of pumping HP: electric utilities, pipelines, ...
