We are going be buying a 15 HP motor, and using a VFD we have, currently not doing anything. While I'm told that typically, you buy a VFD for the Motor (i.e. 15 HP Motor + 15 HP VFD), we couldn't let the Mitsubishi VFD continue to collect dust.
That being said, could a 15 HP power motor be used with a 30 kW VFD (Mitsubishi FR-F740-00620-EC) without harming either unit?
Search on Google and Stack Exchange regarding running a low power on a high power VFD has yielded no results, so here I am asking.
While I can't imagine it being an issue (my thoughts are VFD is just a power supply deal), we figured it wouldn't hurt to be safe and check.
