What is meant by the required motor capacity?
Many motors in use today are oversized for the load they are driving, and some are grossly oversized. In such situations, the motor is driving a load equal to only a fraction of its rated capacity, and if too low the operating efficiency of the motor may suffer. Most importantly, when it's time to replace the motor, purchasing a motor with far excess capacity for its load will cost much more than a properly sized motor. Why spend more than necessary for the same (or even worse) level of service? FEDS understands t many motors may be over- (or under-) sized and allows the user to specify the required capacity of a motor, if known. FEDS will use the required capacity in order to select a replacement motor of the proper size and base its performance and cost calculations accordingly.
