Variable Speed Drive: why is it important for compressor users?

11 January, 2022

Typically, a fifth of UK industry’s electricity bill is attributed to the production of compressed air, but a substantial portion of the generated power dedicated to its production is actually energy wasted. That is why over 25 years ago, Atlas Copco addressed the problem by introducing VFD/VSD technology in its screw compressors. Now, in the form of the latest advanced solutions, compressors with VSD+ specifications are not only capable of achieving outstanding savings of up to 50% of their energy requirement, but they offer the attributes of total functional reliability and the essential benefit of smart communication. So how is a VSD compressor different from a conventional fixedspeed unit?
