Most Motors Do Not Operate at Optimum “Full Load Rating”

Electric induction motors very seldom operate at their optimum full load point creating costly energy inefficiencies. There are several reasons for this. Most motors are selected with a safety factor to ensure they do not become overloaded during normal operation. This ensures longevity since overloaded motors will operate above their full load current rating and generate […]
