Motor output torque in rotation speed (frequency) changes

Frequency power: power supplied by the power grid (commercial power).
Start-up current: frequency inverter output current in motor starts.

The motor starting torque and maximum torque by frequency inverter driving is less than direct frequency power driving.
Motor accelerates in constant frequency power supply has high impact, which can be reduced by using frequency inverter. Because there is a big starting current in motor acceleration if it's powered by constant frequency power supply; when using frequency inverter, the inverter output voltage and frequency is increased gradually, so the motor starting current and impact is much lower.

Generally, the motor torque is decreased with frequency decreases (speed reduction). By using vector control frequency inverter, to improve output torque during motor running in low speed, and even output sufficient torque at motor low speed zones.
