A Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) regulates the speed of a 3-phase AC electric motor by controlling the frequency and voltage of the power it delivers to the motor. Today, these devices (also known as Adjustable Speed Drives or Variable Speed Drives) are becoming prevalent in a wide range of applications throughout industry, from motion control applications to Cooling Towers, from water treatment facilities to machining areas, and many others. Considering the Economical and Environmental factors, it is advisable to modify the existing system rather than replacing it with new one. This project exercises this concept of vibration control in order to obtain smooth running by soft water pump and cooling tower pump.
