Alternate Current (AC) drives are electronic devices that control the speed & torque of an electric motor by alternating parameters such as voltage, frequency & magnetic flux. Optimizing energy consumption plays a crucial role managing the overall operating costs of energy intensive sectors. AC drives offer optimization in energy along with significant reduction in operational costs by controlling the speed and torque of electric motors. Minimization of energy usage and the advantage of the advantages of prolonging the life of the electrical equipment make AC drives to have widespread applications in industries such as oil & gas, water & wastewater, and mining.
The rise in increasing urbanization & growing rate of industrialization are the key factors that drive the growth of the market. Different regulations on obtaining energy efficiency along with rising need for energy optimizations in different industrial processes are the key factors are the factors that boost the market growth.
