Abstract: Majority of the industrial processes are generally carried out using a motor-drive arrangement. The quality of the final output of a process largely depends on the performance and reliability of the motor drive sets. Failure of motor running the process can result in a complete shutdown of the process. Certain processes may not even afford to offer downtime for maintenance. Downtime of motors can severely affect the quality of the end- product of a process. Although there are many tools and algorithms to predict the failure and maintenance patterns for motor, this paper presents a novel means to increase the reliability of motor-drive arrangements. It also presents a cost analysis framework in choosing a motor-drive arrangement for a particular load.
