Induction Motor Energy Efficiency Regulations White Paper

01 Jun 2021 by Carlo Gavazzi Automation

Industrial electric motors account for roughly 50% of the worldwide power consumption. Worldwide initiatives have been put in place by different countries in relation to the efficiency improvement of electric motors.
