Electronic regulators

Energy conservation techniques in a fan, electronic regulators :

  • Conventional fan regulators incorporated resistors in it for the speed control.
  • Lesser amounts of current flows lesser amounts of current flow through fan and remaining passes through the resistor.
  • On increasing the speed more current is allowed to flow to the fan which can rotate at higher speed.
  • Hence at the low speed, these regulators heat up and waste the energy.
  • Advanced technology available in the regulators is electronic much smaller in size as compared to the conventional electronic regulator.
  • In the electronic fan, regulators triac is used for the speed variation by varying the firing angle.
  • This regulator has no problem with heating thus save energy even when the fan is running at low speeds.

Two types of electronic regulators such as:

  1. Movable type
  2. Step type

Movable type

  • Movable type these are the regulator which move smoothly and don’t include any stepped operation.
  • Better then electrical regulator through suffers from heating of due distortion to the movement of the motor.

Step type

  • Most efficient type and lesser distortion to the movement of the motor so level less heat.
