What is a variable speed drive, how does it work?

Adjustable speed drives (ASD), variable-speed drives (VSD), or variable frequency drives (VFD) are used to control the machinery speeds. Industrial processes operate at different speeds for different products. Using ASD adjustable speed drives provides smoother operation, acceleration control, differing operating speeds for each process, compensation for changing process variables, allowing slower operation for setup purposes, adjusting the rates of production, allowing more accurate positioning, and controlling torque or tension
