The purpose of this project was to design a set up for a lab that would serve as an introduction to variable frequency drives. The original plan was to have a digital to analog control (DAQ) scheme using a computer based program such as Vissim to receive an input from a motor and to output a control system to the VFD to regulate a certain speed or pattern. This would give students a chance to practice controlling motors with an automated system using feedback which could be useful in many industrial applications
