In the conventional Sugar Mills, various equipment are operated in variable speed. Generally speed variation is by eddy current whose efficiency is around 60% at 80% operating speed. Most of the pumps are run under reduced capacity by throttling the valves. Here Energy efficient, variable speed equipment- AC-PWM can be installed and this reduces electrical energy consumption at least by 30%
