After doing some research I am at a crossroads regarding supplying power to the shredder. My plan is to produce a mobile workshop that runs off 100% solar. I have found a 3HP motor with reducer that outputs 60 RPM. I really am not attracted to the fact that it is 3Phase, as I believe that will be harder to wire up for solar. VFD's I believe are 1P, which I do like, however will that take power away from the output (I have read converting 3P to 1P can)? My question is it more efficient to purchase a motor with a reducer or a motor without a reducer and connect a VFD to manage RPM? Which route will require more electricity? Would 3P be more efficient for a solar set up? Am I misunderstanding anything? Thanks in advance!
