Drives can save an average of 40% of the electricity a motor uses as well as reduce related CO2 emissions. Since industry accounts for one-third of the world’s electricity consumption and electric motors consume 65% of industrial electricity in regions such as the EU, the potential global energy savings from a wider use of drives would be substantial. For an industrial enterprise drives can reduce energy costs, minimize wear on motors and other equipment, and reduce maintenance costs. For factories, buildings, and utilities, Delta’s MVD2000 medium voltage drive can save energy significantly.

Energy Saving Cases
Delta’s medium voltage drive has successfully enabled annual energy savings in motors of three induced draft (ID) fans in a refuse incineration plant in Taiwan by up to 54%. Such impressive improvement ratio, achieved through the energy-efficient motor speed control realized by the three units of Delta’s MVD series drives, translates into annual savings of approximately 1.7 million kWh in electricity consumption for the first unit installed and to a valuable investment payback period below one year.
The three units of Delta’s MVD have been implemented in a refuse incineration plant in Taiwan to regulate the speed of three ID fans’ 6.6kV, 710kW-rating motors, thus, replacing existing damper control. After one year in operation, one single MVD has enabled annual energy savings of up to 54% for a total of approximately 1.7 million kWh in lower electricity consumption, without sacrificing air flow requirements.
Other sites that have recently obtained relevant benefits from the utilization of Delta’s MVD series include a cement manufacturing plant and an international airport, both located in Taiwan. The former experienced up to 51% annual energy savings through the management of motor speed in a rotary kiln cooling ID fan while the latter case includes a compact all-in-one MVD solution that decreases the input harmonics in the chiller equipment of the southern Taiwan airport’s air conditioning system.
