Energy Savings & Benefits
Most people believe that all power quality problems can be traced to the
power coming from the utility. The reality is more complex. The source
of a power quality problem can be the utility, but it also can be your
neighbor, your facility or even the equipment inside your facility.
Energy savings are experienced through the reduction of high inrush currents
from highly cyclical loads, harmonic reduction in ac motors, improved
power factor, improved voltage balance, and lower I²R losses due
to reduced skin effect and lower current. Reduction in voltage sag and
flicker from internal and external sources assist in reduced downtime
through better network stability.
There are many causes of power quality problems, voltage sags/swells,
harmonics, fast impulses or sub-cycle impulses, neutral to ground high
frequency noise etc. Some of these occur very frequently and cause problems
and others (such as 1 nanosecond or 0.5 nanosecond impulses) either occur
very rarely or cause problems rarely.
The improvement in power quality we provide will reduce heat, vibration,
and noise in your ac motors, resulting in reduced energy expenses, improved
machine performance, reliability, and longer life expectancy.
