Single Phase Power Solutions Partners with Yaskawa on VFDs and Digital Single-Phase Converters

February 16, 2021

Single Phase Power Solutions has partnered with Yaskawa America to incorporate their VFD and Digital Single-Phase Converters within Single Phase’ engineered power systems.  Availability of these proven, digital solutions enhances SPPS’ capabilities to engineer custom designs based on application-specific parameters to deliver clean, stable, reliable three-phase power from single phase utility service.  In many areas of the country, it is prohibitively expensive to extend three-phase power, forcing customers to choose among problematic options such as static or rotary phase converters, or derating three-phase VFDs, which can produce harmful harmonics that can damage sensitive electronics.  This partnership allows Single Phase Power Solutions to better design custom power sources to suit site-specific needs, with no harmonics, no reliability issues, and no tuning required. 

“We’re excited to partner with Yaskawa and include their Digital Single-Phase Converters in our product offerings,” said SPPS President Drew Abbott.  “Incorporating their best in class technology allows us to add even more performance to our engineered power sources.  We’re seeing more interest in custom packages like VFDs with single-phase converters that allow remote monitoring.  This partnership gives us a more robust toolbox for designing power solutions engineered for specific applications.”. 

The partnership with Yaskawa provides substantial benefits, including an IEEE 519 compliant product with total harmonic distortion of less than 10% which reduces installation costs.  Drive sizing is more accurately accomplished, eliminating the need to oversize, thus saving acquisition and operating costs. 

Additionally, Single Phase Power Solutions manufactures the world’s only large horsepower single-phase motor.  Their patented Written-Pole® technology delivers a robust and reliable solution for agricultural, industrial, municipal, oil & gas, and emerging market application that need large horsepower output but only have access to a single-phase power line.  They manufacture a full range of Belle Motors up to 100 HP as well as their 1-to-3 PowerSource that generates three-phase power from a single-phase line.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
