Variable speed drive energy savings calculator

02 August 2011

GAMBICA has launched a simple calculator that estimates the energy savings that installing a variable speed drive (VSD) on a relevant application can achieve.

The free calculator allows potential VSD specifiers to make an informed decision before purchasing a VSD for their application. It comes in the form of a Microsoft Excel file.
The calculator is intended as a first-pass indication tool to make a decision about whether a VSD will bring energy savings to an application. The calculator can also help estimate what payback period can be expected.

“Energy saving is currently a high priority on the British and EU agendas and VSDs are gradually being recognised as one of the most important tools for cutting energy costs,” said Steve Brambley, deputy director of GAMBICA. “We hope this tool will encourage non-technical people, particularly in purchasing departments, to embrace the technology too,” concluded Brambley.

The energy saving calculator can be downloaded for free from the GAMBICA website at
