This project measured the performance of an emerging technology nominal three-horsepower (3HP) high rotor pole Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) with software-controlled inverter, compared to a baseline nominal 3HP baseline induction motor controlled by a Variable-Frequency Drive (VFD) in laboratory testing, and a nominal 3HP baseline single-speed induction motor for field testing.
The difference in performance between the two motors was used to forecast annual energy and demand savings expected to result from replacing the baseline technology with the emerging technology.
