Tech Insights - In-depths knowledge about automation and drive technology.
How did they do that? We answer your technical questions
In Danfoss Drives Tech Insight articles, you find information that helps you to unlock the full potential of your AC drives. Because drives can do much more than just control speed. In the drive sytem, they are characterized by high connectivity. They are important components in modern automation systems and act as sensors and sensor hubs; they analyze, store and process important parameters and data.
What impact do innovations in energy efficiency legislation have on my drive system? Why do harmoncis endanger the quality and safety of the grid? How can this be managed? Which drive technology is used in different hybridization projects? You will find answers to this question and much more on this page. In Tech Insight articles, you get first-hand information from Danfoss experts about how to unleash the potential in your applications.
Tech Insights for energy efficiency experts
Energy efficiency is the lever for reducing electricity costs and CO₂ emissions from buildings and production facilities. There are many measures that can be implemented easily, because the necessary technologies have long been available. Initially, however, the acquisition of such highly efficient technologies means investments.
Which investments pay off? Which measures pay for themselves comparatively quickly? Why do you save particularly much on the speed control of pumps and fans? When does it make sense to use braking energy? Find out in these Tech Insight articles.
For those who want to simulate their savings potential in a fun way, we recommend the online simulation tool from Danfoss Drives. Discover your hidden energy efficiency champions in your building in the online tool.
Does energy recovery make sense for your application?
Regenerative technologies return braking energy to the grid. This can be a very energy efficient approach. However, these technologies often entail higher investment costs and poorer efficiencies. Read how to check whether the investment in regenerative units is worthwhile in your application.
Efficiency champions: Saving with pumps and fans
The most powerful energy efficiency champions in buildings are often hidden at first glance. Did you know, for example, that you can realize the greatest energy savings simply and quickly by speed-controlling fans and pumps? In this article you will learn more about the technical background.
