Essential Applications Of Frequency Converters

Posted by Admin on February, 27, 2014

The need for energy saving devices paved way for Frequency Converters. Also known as Frequency Changers, Frequency Converters are electro mechanical devices that convert AC (Alternating Current) of one frequency to Alternating Current of another frequency. Often used in motor generators, these machines are capable of transforming power from one distribution standard to another. The need for this change is to control the flow of AC and override sparks.


Application Of Frequency Converters

Frequency converters work on 50 Hz, 60 Hz and 400 Hz. These converters come in several power handling capacities to meet the requirements in different applications. Their ability varies from couple of watts for domestic usage to megawatts for commercial usage.


Frequency Converters are mainly used to control the speed of the pumps and fans used in various industrial processes. The industrial applications of Frequency Converter are as follow:


  • In Aerospace: Airplanes generally use 400 Hz power, thus they need a 50Hz, 60Hz or 400 Hz frequency converter in the ground power unit to power up the airplane. Airlines also use these converters to provide in-air wall current to passenger for use with electronic devices.
  • Renewable Energy System: In renewable energy system, Frequency Converters are an essential component of DFIGs or Doubly Fed Induction Generators as used in modern class wind turbines.
  • Nuclear Powered & Weapon Industry: Frequency Converters are used to control the speed and motion of motors, primarily pumps and fans. This is particularly true in nuclear industry, where such devices regulate the operation of centrifuge.
