Solar Pump Controller and Their Working Principle

Posted By veikong on July 9, 2019

Solar pump controller is an electronic device that controls the circulating pump to harvest more heat as possible from the solar panels and it also protects the system for overheating. When there is heat available in the panels the controller turns the circulating pump and moves the working fluid through the panels to the heat …

How a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) Can Help You Save Energy?

Posted By veikong on May 7, 2019

VFDs (Variable Frequency Drives) are used for less frequency than fixed speeds controllers. It can be used efficiently to ensure savings in production cost and significantly reduce energy use. It uses an AC motor to control pump and fans in a system without using dampers and valves. A fixed speed motor has to be controlled …
