Design Fundamentals for Drive Systems on Conveyors
The combination of a number of factors can result in conveyor drives being undersized or operating in an unsuitable manner. Some of these factors include:
- The trend to reduce drive sizes by reducing friction coefficients.
- The trend towards using squirrel cage induction motors under variable voltage variable frequency controls combined without considering the drive characteristics.

The Right Drive to Maximize Efficiency and Production for Large Overland Conveyors
This paper examines various drive systems available for large overland conveyors, with special attention to starting and operating methods with respect to two most commonplace drives, the
VFD (for squirrel cage induction motors) and the SRC, secondary resistive controller, (for wound
rotor induction motors).
