VFD Applications for Pump


Some excellent situations for applying a VFD in a turf irrigation pump system are: Any pump station with dramatically Varying flow rates over a wide flow range, the VFD can be a better regulating device than a control valve. Care must always be taken to achieve evenly balanced flow requirements across the irrigation zones. Some conventional pump stations utilizing jockey or pressure maintenance pumps. The pumps keep the mainline pressurized, offsetting the weeping of field valves. Jockey pumps reduce the wear and tear on the main pump when low flows are required. A VFD on the main pump in lieu of a jockey pump may enable the pump to better operate at low flows. Booster pumps for potable water or irrigation. The incoming pressure and discharge demand can vary greatly based on time of day and other variables. Pump stations with higher horsepower pumps. They are better candidates for energy savings than smaller stations.

Specifying a VFD Pump Station


Once it has been determined that a VFD is appropriate for the application, the designer should consider the following: Is the system designed to maintain constant pressure? The pump station should be designed to maintain a constant discharge pressure. In a well designed VFD system, a pressure transducer provides a control feedback. The VFD, when properly tuned, maintains constant pressure, in effect matching pump output to actual demand in the field. If a feedback signal from a pressure transducer is absent, most of the advantages of a VFD are lost. How is the temperature limitation of the VFD being handled? If the VFD is to be installed in an industrial enclosure, an air conditioner or air/water heat exchanger should be specified. If the VFD comes in a self-contained NEMA 4 package, it can be mounted under the pump enclosure or on an open skid. In that case, the VFD should include a cooling fan and also be shielded from direct sunlight. What electrical protection is being offered? The pump station manufacturer must include a separate device for disconnect, ground-fault/short-circuit protection, and surge / lightning protection as required by the National Electrical Code, the VFD manufacturer, and best design practices. Does the pump station include a VFD for each motor? For stations with multiple pumps, there should be an individual drive for each motor. Many manufacturers include one VFD and transfer the motor across the line when the next pump starts. This is done to reduce cost, but will result in reduced energy savings and unbalanced loads between the pumps. What pump control logic is provided? The pump station should be designed to not only maintain a constant discharge pressure, but also to retire the pump on a no-flow signal. Without this logic the system will cycle between high and low operating set points, and the life of the motor and piping will be affected. To provide the noflow retirement, as well as loss of prime and low pressure shut down sequences, the pump station should include a programmable logic controller (PLC) or an integrated logic card within the VFD. The benefits of using VFDs in many turf irrigation applications are noteworthy. Thoughtful consideration should be given, however, to each individual situation to warrant the use of a VFD. It is of major importance to properly design the system to ensure optimum efficiency and to reap the rewards a VFD promises. Time spent is money saved!
