Compressed Air

Optimized operation of an air compressor by means of frequency control

The project aims at optimizing the operation of an air compressor by means of frequency control. Due to the fact that a processing unit needs different amounts of air depending on the operation mode, the application of a frequency converter leads to provision of constant pressure by modulating the rotation speed. With this measure the demand for power output corresponds to the actual amount of air utilized.
