On Demand Webinar: Low or Medium Voltage Drives? Considerations for selecting the right drive for your application
Operationally, a medium voltage drive is almost indistinguishable from a low voltage drive. The differences are in the topologies used for the rectifier and for the inverter, the protection schemes used to minimize collateral damage and the sensing and monitoring the MV drive employs for the line, drive and motor. This workshop helps you understand when it makes sense to choose low or medium voltage drives.
A Q&A session moderated by David Greenfield will follow the live webinar.
