Description:
In many heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) applications, air handler motors are either off, or on at full speed. However, by adding variable speed control to the air handler, significant energy savings over the standard on/off control can be realized, resulting in significantly reduced cost of operation. This application note discusses the implementation of a variable speed air handler that utilizes a single phase AC induction motor. The task of designing the variable speed air handler is greatly simplified by using the Microchip Programmable Motor Control Processor Technology (ProMPT) Single Phase Induction Motor Control Evaluation Kit and the PIC18F2539 microcontroller.
