July 11, 2016 -- Koch Minerals, LLC, a subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc., announced that it entered into strategic agreements with AC Kinetics, Inc. to commercialize run-time motor control software for variable frequency drives (VFDs) operating alternating current induction motors.

This new control architecture integrates nonlinear optimization with VFD motor control for all drive applications, including those requiring rapid transient response, limited overshoot and settling time, and insensitivity to load disturbances. The advanced software, supported by real-time adaptive algorithms, will run on standard VFD hardware.  Certified lab and field tests demonstrate total energy savings of up to 50 percent, while maintaining motor drive performance in both steady-state and dynamic operating environments.

The demand for this software includes drive manufacturers and VFD end-users in commercial, industrial, manufacturing, and transportation markets, whose drives and motors consume nearly one half of the industrial power produced globally.
