Tips: Do I need a VFD?
First question is about load speed / torque profile. If load need large speed variation, variable frequency drive (VFD) come with significant energy saving, if not, may be difficult to sustain VFD cost/ investment. First candidates to VFD are pump / fan systems. VFDs do provide some advantages, but there are also some disadvantages as well, like harmonics injection, motor insulation premature fails, cable reflection for lengths more than 10m. These issues must be controlled / put in balance. So, there are not advantages only by using a VFD.

For sure VFDs are big energy enablers. Yet official data announced that only 10 to 20% of motors are equipped worldwide. And even with new motor classes, we will not reach the same level of savings. The trend is now motor being embedded intelligence for energy savings, this push VFD manufacturers enhance the saving rates of the VFD. Finally, people and earth will benefit of their capabilities.

For the area where there is only single phase power supply available but you have three phase plant, in case of less than 5 HP, by far the most efficient and easy way to convert single phase to three phase are the variable frequency drives out that can be equipped with single phase front ends, and provide variable frequency three phase power. I have one 5hp VFD on my water pump and could not be happier, not just for the ability to use a three phase motor, but also soft start, dynamic breaking, speed control, and direction control.

Phase conversion for 5hp motor
We are interested in the GK3000-2S0037G model VFD. Our application requires a typical 240V single phase connection for the input and three phase output of 240V to a 5 HP motor. I was looking in the manual and it indicated on page 21 that single phase is only applied to motors up to 3 hp (2.2 kW). Can you confirm that as indicated that the phase conversion will work for a 5HP motor, and if so what would the input connections look like as they apply to page 21 in the manual.

Customized VFDs
Generally, the capacity for VFDs in single phase input is 3 hp for small motors, just as you saw in the user manual.

This model is customized by a three phase input VFD to work for single phase input, which is absolutely worked for 5hp 3ph 240v motors.

GoHz can even customize a 10hp or 20hp VFD with single phase input to do the phase conversion job.

vfd for hammer mill
I realize that you have a 5hp VFD Mod# GK3000-2S0037;
Is this drive fully capable to operate a three phase 220 Volts; 60 Hz; 5 HP motor driving a hammer mill. The mill is to be connected to a Single Phase 220 volts 50 Hz Supply.

Would I need a bigger capacity vfd (say 10 Hp) for this application?

Please advise on the best option for this application.

Upsize the VFD
Hammer mill is a heavy duty load, we recommend a 7.5hp VFD, GK3000-2S0055

Does 5hp pump require 7.5hp VFD
we will be running a 5hp high pressure pump for a reverse osmosis on a 220V single phase input.  Will a 5hp VFD be sufficient or do we need to bump up to a 7.5?

VFD for 5hp high pressure pump
Yes, you can use this 5HP single phase to three phase VFD to drive the pump.
