MV Drives

High efficiency MV drives

Cutting-edge power electronics technology and decades of process expertise come together
in GE's medium voltage variable speed drives portfolio, suitable for a wide range of
industrial applications where energy efficiency, reliability, and safety matter to drive profitable
operations. Building on more than 100 years of experience, GE has demonstrated capability
as innovator with an imaginative approach to the design and development of high
performance electric power systems, enabling greater affordability, efficiency and reliability.  

Our MV drives portfolio ranges from 100kW to more than 100MW and from 3.8 up to
13.8kV voltages and allows for higher operating efficiency, power availability, plant
throughput, operational precision, and process yield. Based on a proven track record of
thousands of installed units worldwide delivering millions of hours of operation combined
cross the  industries, our products and systems demonstrated to meet the requirements such
as in Oil & Gas, Power Generation, Marine, Hydro  and other industries. To protect assets
and keep critical processes running, GE offers a range of Services and Trainings.


  • 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
