Variable speed assets such as VFDs and low-cost DC Drives are becoming more and more common across a wide range of industries and applications. The benefits in process control and cost savings are significant but the challenges these assets present to the vibration analyst, including increased noise, smearing and peak spreading, are equally significant.
This webinar will cover the data issues before moving on to discussing available tools and solutions, including the benefits and limitations of using advanced techniques such as time synchronous averaging and precise order tracking. Please note that the webinar will not be covering operational principles or electronic issues related to the operation of VFDs in any depth – it focuses instead on challenges and solutions for the vibration analyst.
