Designing for Minimum Flow with VFD Operation
When we enter the world of variable speed pumping, we must remember that all centrifugal pumps have some minimum allowable speed and flow rates. For proper operation of these systems, it is critical that we design the system - and specify the pump, motor, and drive equipment - with these considerations in mind. This webcast will guide you on a path to a greater understanding of the challenges in and solutions to the key issues involved with variable speed pumping and minimum flow requirements.
