Powerstar HV MAX is one of the only UK manufactured super low loss transformers with an amorphous core. It is coupled with integrated electronic-dynamic (Powerstar MAX) technology enabling it to offer improved efficiencies on the HV side and energy consumption savings on the LV side, providing a combined solution.
The reason businesses need to optimise voltage is to correct the problems caused by the HV infrastructure.
Unless the HV distribution transformer is brand new, it is more efficient to correct the issue at source by upgrading to a super low loss transformer with an amorphous core. Benefits include:
The benefits associated with upgrading transformers include:
The advantage of a Powerstar HV MAX system is that it utilises electronic-dynamic optimisation on the Low Voltage (LV) side, so it has the ability to provide additional savings on top of the HV side transformer efficiencies.
The majority of the savings are achieved through negative power (back EMF) in which excess voltage is sent in the direction of the supply, ensuring only a tenth of the power is transformed, resulting in reduced voltage AND current, further savings are also achieved from improved equipment efficiencies. Benefits include:
Powerstar, the market leading voltage optimisation and energy storage brand, is currently involved in a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University and Innovate UK. Sheffield Hallam University ‘control and power electronics’ PhD graduate and Powerstar employee Dr. Zeng is at the forefront of developing a portable solar power PV inverter system...
