ABB Technical Guides offer independent advice on today’s hot issues

ABB has produced a range of Technical Guides that offer concise explanations of the major technologies and technical issues in motor and variable speed drive operation.

The Technical Guides cover subjects such as the basics of variable speed drives, dimensioning a drive system, electrical braking, harmonics and AC drives and bearing currents. Fully indexed and illustrated with explanatory diagrams, the guides form an invaluable library of drive and motor information. Other titles in the series are motion control drives, EMC compliant installation of variable speed drives, EU Council directives and adjustable speed and electrical power drive systems and Direct Torque Control. There is also a guide on functional safety with advice on how to meet the latest European directives. Available as individual booklets, the guides can be ordered on the ABB Brochureline on 0800 783 7491 or by emailing
