Q: what are the control modes of the inverter?A：V/F sine pulse width modulation mode, open-loop vector control mode, closed-loop vector control mode25. Q: Why is the voltage of the inverter changes in proportional to the frequency? A：When frequency conversion, the magnetic circuit of motor varies in a wide range with the operating frequency, it is very easy to make the magnetic circuit of the motor get saturated severely, which leads to a severe waveform distortion of the excitation current, to bring a peak current with high value. So frequency and voltage should varies proportionately, means control the output voltage of inverter when changing frequency, to make magnetic circuit of motor keep certain, avoid weak magnetic or magnetic saturation.26. Q: What is the difference between closed-loop control and open-loop control?A: Set the speed detector (Encoder) for the motor device used to feedback the actual speed to control device, it is the "closed-loop control", the one no needs sensor operation is called "open-loop control".27.

Q: How does the torque of the motor change when V and F are changed proportionately? A: The voltage is reduced proportionately when the frequency drops. Since AC impedance becomes small and DC resistance doesn’t change, it will cause the torque produced at low speed will be reduced. Therefore, when V/f is given at low frequency, The torque boost is usually used to obtain a certain starting torque.31. Q: What is PID control? A: In actual projects, the regulator control law of most widely used is proportional, integral, differential control, short for PID control. The parameter setting of the PID controller is the core content of the control system design.

Q: How to deal with when there is a deviation in actual speed and given speed? A: Usually in open loop control, even if the inverter outputs the given frequency, When the motor is running on load, the speed of the motor changes within the range of the rated slip (1%~5%). For the requirements of higher speed accuracy, even if the load changes, it also requires operation near a given speed, can use FR300 series for closed-loop control.33. Q: Can speed accuracy be improved by the feedback of PG card if using a motor with an encoder? A: The inverter with PG feedback function can improve speed accuracy.34. Q: What is the meaning of the over-current stall function? A: If the given acceleration and deceleration time is too short, the change of the inverter output frequency is well over the change of speed (electric angle frequency). The inverter will be tripped over and stop because of over-current. This is called lose speed. In order to prevent the lose speed to keep running, the acceleration and deceleration rate should be slowed down when the acceleration and deceleration current is too large, so as to achieve over-current lose speed protection.35. Q: What is the frequency resolution ? What does it mean?A: For digital controlled inverters, even if the frequency command is an analog signal, the output frequency is also graded given. This minimum unit of gradation is called frequency resolution.

Q: what will happen if the input over-voltage ?A: If the input over-voltage, the inverter will report the overvoltage protection fault, even damage the internal circuit.39. Q: How does the inverter prevent thunder?A: Thunder strikes are divided into direct thunder and inductive thunder. The direct thunder strikes lightning directly on the drives, it causes the greatest damage; the inductive thunder is the inducted high pressure of electromagnetic wave produced by the lightning on the conductor, causing overvoltage of the electrical appliances connected to the conductors to damage. On the grid, the multi-stage arrester has been installed. However, the residual voltage of pre stage lightning or the lightning induced voltage near the inverter will still damage the inverter. Solution: install the line arrester in the inverter control cabinet. The line arresters usually use the power power supply lightning protection module, slideway installation, and parallel grounding. 40. Q: What causes the problem that the inverter stops and report over current fault when some high power motors start. How to solve it?A: when the large motor starts to run, it will pull down the voltage of the power grid, however the other load will cause too much current to report over-current when output frequency don’t change, so it stops running. The solution: increasing the capacity of grid transformer.41. Q: is there any limitation when installing inverter?A: the inverter can be installed on the wall or a cabinet. In order to optimize the heat dissipation of the inverter, please install vertically.42.

When inverter installed at altitudes below 1000m, it can run at rated power. When the altitude above 1000m, it requires downgrade by reduction of 1% per 100m in proportion to use. Keeping away from the application of electromagnetic radiation. It can use in the application for no oil mist, corrosive flammable gas.

Q: why is there a leakage current problem?A: When the inverter stops running, the leakage current is generally small. When the inverter is running, because of the high speed switching of the power module of the inverter, the higher harmonics exist in the output current. And because there is inductance between cable and ground, so producing the large leakage current. (can up to 10 times of inverter stops running).45.
