1. Why adjustable speed drives are preferred over a fixed speed motor?
The common reasons for preferring an adjustable speed drives over a fixed speed motor are:
Energy saving e.g. Fan or pump flow process, Velocity and position control e.g. Electric train,
portable tools, washing machine, Amelioration of transients: Starting and stopping of motors produce
sudden transients. It can be smoothened using adjustable speed drives.
2. What is the structure of an adjustable speed drive system?
The general structure of a motion control system or drive consists of the following elements:

3. What are the advantages of PM machine?
In general, PM machines have a higher efficiency as a result of the passive, PM-based field
excitation. PM machines have the highest power density compared with other types of electric
machines, which implies that they are lighter and occupy less space for a given power rating. The
amount of magnet material that is required for a given power rating is a key cost consideration. The
cost of magnet material is high compared with the cost of the other materials used in electric motors,
and design attributes that minimize the required amount of magnet material are important
considerations in motor selection. The stators of PM machines are generally fabricated in the same
manner as induction machine stators; however, modifications are sometimes necessary, such as the
design of a stator lamination to accommodate high flux density.
