There are a couple of curves in the 2001 E-source electronic encyclopedia
(probably more recent versions as well). They show vfd & motor efficiency
vs. speed for a vfd-fan-motor system.

Does anyone know of published research that relates motor efficiency to
percent load as well as drive frequency?
We have motor curves for efficiency vs. percent load, but these curves all
assume a nominal speed that is being maintained as load decreases. What
happens to your motor efficiency when you are also changing the drive
Thanks for any leads.
