VFD's Can Be Used to Improve Input Power Factor

In very basic terms, power factor is expressed as the ratio of real power, kilowatts (kW), to apparent power, kilovolt-amperes (kVA). A desirable ratio of near unity results when the real power and apparent power are nearly equivalent. Power factor is an indication of how effectively a load uses power.

How to Size Servo Motors: Advanced Inertia Calculations

When selecting the appropriate servo motor for a motion control application, one must know the inertia of the load being rotated.
