GAMBICA Installation Guidelines for Power Drive Systems
This Technical Report has been produced to meet a demand for an authoritative guide on best practice for the installation of Power Drive Systems. It is the result of a study carried out by GAMBICA and REMA, taking note of well-established fundamental theory, technical papers, and carrying out specific investigations. The information given, while it can be applied to motors and inverters in general, is specific to current generation products of member companies.
The Technical Report principally considers the aspects of safe mechanical and electrical installation and the avoidance of EMC problems.
This report covers motors and inverters installed with a separate cabling system connecting the components together; it is not wholly applicable to inverters integrated into a motor design, which are now generally available up to 7.5 kW.
