Benefits of using variable frequency drives on greenhouse exhaust systems
MetadataShow full item record
Greenhouses provide many benefits to a plant producer by allowing for a tightly controlled environment best suited for the crop. Since sunlight is allowed almost free access to the inside of a greenhouse, removing heat buildup becomes a large obstacle to deal with. Energy needed to meet a typical cooling requirement can be costly and lowering overhead will be helpful to a sustainable greenhouse business. Variable frequency drive (VFD) technology has the potential to not only save electricity and reduce monthly operating costs, but can offer the grower climactic and water use benefits as well. ...
