Is your business suffering from unexplained electrical faults, failures or power spikes? A power quality audit will identify issues and give us the data we need to design an appropriate solution for your business. At QUality Energy, we can assist you to optimise your return on investment (ROI) and get the most from your power.
Power quality is the electric power that drives an electrical device and the device’s ability to function properly with the electric power it is being provided. Poor voltage waveforms can lead to unnecessary and costly disruptions for electronically controlled equipment. There are several issues that can have an effect on the power quality at your establishment. These include:
• Momentary power interruptions
• Electrical noise
• Extended power interruptions
• Voltage sags and surges
• Harmonic distortion
• High-speed transients
• Lightning damage
An in-depth power quality audit by our power protection experts will involve assessing your facilities, including wiring, loading, line balance, polarity grounding, harmonic distortion, and more. Detailed findings and data analysis are provided after the audit in a written report. By providing you with the technical and economic analysis data options, you have the information needed to help you make an informed decision to solve your power quality problems. Please note that for best results, this activity should be performed when the facility is operating at a minimum of 70% of the normal load.
Regardless of the industry in which you operate, your business could benefit from a power quality audit. Without clean, uniform power, your facility is more prone to premature equipment failures or outages. The need for better power quality has also become increasingly important for companies interested in energy conservation and continuous control. By carrying out the power quality audit, you can identify potential problems, plan and take corrective measures, and prevent facility downtime, saving both time and money. Yet, many power quality problems stem from improper wiring and/or grounding – not from the electrical grid.
A power quality audit can help to identify poor power factors and sources of electrical pollution. Our recommendations for improvement can be complemented with products and solutions from the Quality Energy suite of power correction products and services. We can help you with the implementation of electrical pollution solutions that suit your needs. Our time-tested expertise in this area can help to revitalise electrical systems to a level you may have considered to be out of reach. If you want to minimise downtime, accelerated aging and breakdown of equipment, and non-efficient usage of your power, contact us to learn more.
