Join the IEEE Toronto Instrumentation & Measurement – Robotics & Automation Joint Chapter for a talk on The Features and Functionalities of Modern Low Voltage AC Variable Frequency Drives, presented by Hossein Karimian, P.Eng.


Wednesday, February 22, 2023, @ 4:00 – 5:00 PM


Abstract: Variable speed drives have opened numerous opportunities to improve productivity, efficiency, saving engineering time and costs.
They are effectively utilized in a wide range of applications in industries such as: fans, pumps and compressors, conveyors, compressors, mixers, grinders, saws, lifts, blowers, agitators, centrifuge...etc.
Depending on the application, the appropriate variable frequency drives can be selected and incorporated in the automation concept.

Hossein Karimian's talk will present advantages of Siemens low voltage SINAMICS VFD while discussing its performance, and innovative design.
