Power quality advice

The general steps associated with investigating many of these problems, involves the interaction between the utility supply system and your facility – a free-of-charge service delivered by our skilled advisors. The general process also considers whether the issue involves an existing power quality problem, a potential problem that could result from a new design or from proposed changes to the system.

What is power quality?

This refers to the compatibility between the power from an electric supply and the electrical load/component that is connected to it, as well as the load’s ability to consume the energy it receives.  The efficiency of electrical equipment can be affected by various power quality issues, such as poor power factor, voltage instability and imbalance, and the presence of electrical harmonics. This could result in:

An increase in energy usage and costs

An increase in maintenance costs

Equipment malfunction and failure

Identify your power quality status

It is critical to assess, protect and improve your power quality, and should be an integral part of your energy management strategy. There are many choices in terms of equipment and manufacturers, depending on your facility needs. The most expensive solution, is however, not always the right solution to the problem. Both power problems and your business’ energy use needs will be identified and addressed by your energy advisor, ensuring the most accurate assessment.
