ABSTRACT
The article discusses the different views of designs in which variable-frequency drive (VFD) that are utilized to improve operation. It states that it shows the difference of this operation from the conventional cooling -tower designs. It mentions that VFDs not only saves money but also makes money and it provides many advantages when used in cooling towers.
