If a company is operating its own HV/LV distribution transformer the most effective option is to optimise the voltage at the HV (High Voltage) side by replacing the current inefficient transformer with Powerstar HV MAX.
The Powerstar HV MAX system can be manufactured from 315kVA to 3000kVA, allowing for 11,000V input (other inputs available) and regulated 380V or user defined output.
Powerstar HV MAX is the only system which utilises an amorphous core HV/LV distribution transformer with fully integrated electronically regulated (MAX) voltage optimisation technology. This unique capability minimises installation costs substantially, especially where access and/or space limitations exist.
The flexibility of the HV MAX design allows for the electronic-dynamic voltage optimisation to be integrated either in the same platform as the amorphous core distribution transformer or mounted remotely.
It often makes sense to replace the existing HV distribution transformer with Powerstar HV MAX even if there is still some years of functional operation left in the currently installed conventional transformer and typically around 1%-3% savings can be expected simply by upgrading to the amorphous core HV transformer used in Powerstar HV MAX.
In addition double digit savings can be expected from the integrated electronic-dynamic voltage optimisation technology through energy consumption and carbon reduction savings, as a result annual energy consumption savings from Powerstar HV MAX average around 13%.
Powerstar HV MAX is ideal for businesses with the following profile:
Dr Alex Mardapittas, inventor of the VIRTUE energy storage solution and Managing Director of Powerstar, emphasises how electricity supply issues have become an increasingly common problem within the UK electricity network. Recent power failures at multiple airports highlight the dangers of unprotected supplies in a world reliant on technology. With modern advances in technology, increasing...
