Answer / rawjaw

We know a relation speed
say,N=120f/p,speed directly
proportional to freq.In some
applications large motors
used to drive a heavy load,we
start such motors from 0 rpm
& provides initial torque(say
160%) in order to achieve
energy efficient.ok..

Is This Answer Correct ?    4 Yes 2 No

Answer / hitesh kareliya

VFD Means Variable Frequency Drive,So that means we
controll the Pump's RPM via VFD in desired frequency.

Answer / amit shetkar

see firstly vfd is basically used mainly for 2 purpose i.e to
protect electrical motors & for speed control.
& now about that star delta arrangement it used before motor
in that star connection is used to give smooth start to motor
& when motor achieve it's speed so to maintain that speed
delta connection is used
