I want to run the 120vac blower less agressively. Like 9ov instead. I find that I can series install an inductor and that works well. Q1 Would it be best to use a buck xfmr instead? Q2 How does the inductor method affect cost of operation? Q3 I note that the motor runs cooler either way. What is happening regarding phase shift, like EIcos theta? Thats about it. I do plan to measure phase w analog scope but fear line isolation. I wonder if my amp clamp and fluke can give meaningful data. I think the pf is about .86, or 30 degrees. Just curious about how things work. Thanks
Maybe I am wrong but this inductive blower works good at 100 vac. Do common inductor motors tend to make it to sync rpm and like lock up to line freq. within certain limits? That is what I observe. All in all I get a cool quiet blower at about 40 percent less heating. Is this believable in your opinion?
