How do variable frequency drives help farmers and growers conserve water?
Growing crops and raising livestock commercially takes a lot of water. Without access to stable and affordable water, you may need to leave acres upon acres of viable farmland fallow. Adding a VFD to your drought management strategy can minimize energy and water usage during irrigation.
VFDs are motor controllers that regulate the amount of energy that a motor receives. A water pump powered by a motor without a VFD will run at a constant speed, regardless of how much energy is necessary for the pump to function. Pressurized irrigation systems utilizing VFDs are much more energy efficient than those that do not.
