A Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) is a system that can control speed, torque and position of AC motors. In process automation and motion control for various industrial and commercial applications such as cooling fans, pumps, belt conveyors, rotary kilns, and elevators, VFDs are used. Reliability of a VFD is application-dependent, as the magnitude and type of failure-governing stresses vary with each...
