Energy Consumption of Different Types of Lift Drive System
Friday 1st May 1992
Large differences are discovered when the energy consumption of different types of lift drive are compared. In general the question is: what is the most energy and cost-saving solution for a lift drive system? Using a special measurement set-up and a computer program to standardise the results, a comparison has been made between single-speed, two-speed, chopper and VVVF drives. The results of the test showed clearly the advantages and disadvantages of the various drive systems.
