MV Drives

Critical power conversion systems demand efficient and reliable drives

With more than 100 years of experience, we have a track record as innovators with an imaginative approach to the design and development of the next generation of advanced drives.

GE is one of the leading global suppliers of medium voltage drives in the range of 100kW to more than 100MW, and from 3.8 up to 13.8kV voltages. GE’s medium voltage variable speed drives are suitable for a wide range of applications in O&G, renewables, marine, metals, mining, power generation and test systems. Our medium voltage drives can provide with greater energy-savings as well as increased productivity.

Benefits

  • Simple & efficient control of your process: Medium Voltage Variable Frequency Drives (MV VFD) enable greatly improved efficiency, control accuracy and operational flexibility in your process. Compared with fixed speed operation and Low Voltage Variable Frequency Drives, in more and more applications, MV VFDs has proven saving substantial capital and/or operational cost to end users, as standalone drives or as part of complex system solutions
  • Appropriate power usage in response to load: a VFD manages power based on actual demand and uses only the energy required by the driven equipment to provide valuable energy savings
  • Avoid peak demand charges: when starting large motors with VFDs, current inrush peaks are eliminated. The VFD gradually ramps the motor up to speed by varying output voltage, current and frequency for a soft start
