English term or phrase: frequency drive
technical problems with sofware on dredger; the original text is in Flemish, but with lots of English words; my translation for one of the sentences in which "frequency drive" appears, would be as follows:
"Esto significa que el servidor principal (main server) funciona como terminal maestro (master) respecto de los ***transmisiones de frecuencia*** (frequency drives) que son secundarias (slave) en cuanto a gestión de carga (load management)."
the same term in other sentences in the same text:
- "slave (frequency drives, PS & SB propulsion)"
- "frequency drives start hunting"
- "frequency drive jet pump"
Podría ser "transmisión de frecuencia" en este contexto?

impulsor de frecuencia variable

It seems to be referring to Variable frequency drives which control the speed of AC motors.

variador (de velocidad) de (por) frecuencia

Por el contexto parecen ser "inverters" es decir variadores de velocidad de motores (por variación de frecuencia).
Además se puede gestionar la carga regulando la velocidad de los motores.
