How to select frequency converter to control a domestic refrigerator compressor
Hi guys. I want to control a variable speed compressor installed on a domestic refrigerator. But this is the first time I work on this so I really do not have any idea about this. How can I select a frequency converter to control a variable speed compressor? Which specifications, features I have to consider? Thanks in advance.
