Optimization of manufacturing and electrical infrastructure capacity is major concerns for industrials. Since the transformer protection has to coordinate with the utility fuse that feeds the site, energy capacity and required safety margins bring operational constraints.
In fact, transformer size is typically limited by the presence of inrush currents, accordingly sized fuse and upstream protection device. By eliminating inrush currents and hence the associated disturbances, it allows a tighter setting of the protection devices and allows a larger power transformer to be installed, without affecting the utility distribution system.
With the use of the SynchroTeq technology, the inrush currents are eliminated, allowing then the upgrade of the transformer and the accommodation of a larger load to increase the energy capacity of a facility.
- Leverages energy capacity of industrial/commercial installations to improve top line
- Allows system expansion without costly infrastructure upgrades
- Improves personnel safety by mitigating arc flash
- Increases lifespan of transformers, hence reducing expenses
- Reduces costs of projects with extra load capacity avoiding the need for electrical installations at higher voltages
- Preserve transformers, generators, switchgears in industrial facilities, in connected or islanding mode.
- Improve power quality, while reducing the costs of inrush mitigation or transformer demagnetization techniques.
- Provides real-time web monitoring and control
