The article "Fluid Couplings vs VFDs for High Inertia Rotating Driven Loads" appeared in the September 2017 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
As the old adage goes, "There is more than one way to skin a cat." In the early stages of any project, system designers are faced with choices; whether they are designing a new application or retrofitting an old one, they need to determine what is the most efficient, economical and practical way of completing the task at hand. Though there are usually at least two viable means to accomplish the task, the first step is always to review and weigh the merits of each option.
