Solution to Unstabilized Voltage Supply

Unstable Voltages: Consequences & Costs


Equipment damages by sustained over voltages and under voltages
(electronics damage, motor overheating, etc.)
Loss of Production / Revenue due to supply changeover and
unavailability
Loss of Production Batch due to supply instability and interruptions
Decreased efficiency of the distribution system and consumer loads
Cost per kWh is usually 2-5 times more expensive for diesel generators
than for electricity supplied by the utility (typically, 0.25 to 0.5 liters of
fuel per kWh depending on generator set)
Backup generators are frequently undersized for power requirement of
entire plant and are used to backup key processes and equipment only

Under Voltages: Cost of Losses


Transmission and Distribution Losses are calculated as I2R
Raising voltage proportionately reduces current and reduces losses
5% current increase (5% increase in current)
12R (1.05)2R = 1.1025R
Approx. 10% increase in losses
10% current increase (10% increase in current)
12R (1.1)2R = 1.21R
21% increase in losses
Unstable voltages decrease equipment life, increasing capital
purchases

Customer Benefits of Stabilized Voltage Supply


Stable supply voltages are critical for:
Distribution Companies
Chemical/Material Processing Plants
Food and Beverage Plants
Pharmaceutical Plants
Highly Automated Processes
Hospitals
Hotels
Data Centers
Shopping Malls
Regulated voltage results in:
Energy Savings from higher efficiency
Extends life of equipment
Prevents damage to motors & automated equipment
Non-interruption of Critical processes
Reduced operation of diesel generators (lower operating cost)

Some Important Features


Single Phase control to react individually to the voltage variance of
each phase.
System shall continue to supply regulated supply in case of failure or
maintenance of VR unit.
Single phase operation reduces number of operations hence increase
the tap changer / equipment life.
Easy operation without prolonged or no shutdown requirements for
maintenance.
Negligible no Load Losses (Vary around 0.1%)
Negligible full load losses (Around 0.2%)
