    The goal Options to increase energy efficiency of electrical drive at each particular level: selection of motor and other components within the drive in the design stage, drive parameters tuning during the commissioning, energy efficient motor control and energy optimal control of the process driven by the drive in consideration. Electrical drive impact to supply network: negative effects elimination.
    The outcome The ability to analyze the electrical drive from the electrical energy consumer point of view and aspects of the supply network connection. Preparation and training for the analyses of energy efficiency of the electrical drive and the driven technological process as a whole with the use of modern technical, technological and software tools.
