Techniques for energy conservation by reducing losses in ac motor driven systems proposed by the technical community in response to surging cost of energy are evaluated. The objectives of the report are to provide better understanding of underlying principles and to evaluate technical and economic viability of these techniques for various applications. An important aspect considered is the impact on electric utility system in terms of harmonics, power factor of operation and electromagnetic inteference. The impact of rapid growth in semiconductors and magnetic materials technologies is considered.
