Motor drives have an undeniable presence in key systems used in our daily lives. As such, energy savings through efficiency and reliability improvement is of paramount importance and is the key focus for suppliers and regulatory standards bodies.
Everyday we see systems in motion all around us. What makes them move? On the outset, it may be due to wheels as in the case of an automobile.
