Variable frequency drive cooling fan maintenance

Variable frequency drive cooling system mainly includes heat sinks and cooling fans, wherein the cooling fan service life is short. The fan generates vibration, noise increases and finally stops when approaching end-life, then the VFD drive tipped in IPM overheat. The cooling fan service life is limited by the bearing, which is about 10000 ~ 35000 hours. When the variable frequency drive continuous operation, we need to replace the fan or bearing in two to three years. To extend the cooling fan life, some VFD's fan only operation when the VFD turn on, but not the power on.
