The design and specification of the Powerstar voltage optimisation system is unique. It holds a patent on its design which ensures that other voltage optimisation solutions, although similar in principle and application are unable to replicate the exact design specifications of the Powerstar system.
It is through this patented design that Powerstar is able to generate negative power feedback (back EMF).
Powerstar voltage optimisation technology is a transformer-based system used to optimise the characteristics of the current supplied at the source (first current), according to current characteristics required at the load (second current).
A report from The University of Warwick produced by Professor Jihong Wang, entitled ‘Simulation Study for a Transformer Based Voltage Regulator’, summarises the effect of Powerstar (referred to as voltage regulator), including the impact of negative power (back EMF).
The report concluded:
Powerstar MAX or Powerstar HV MAX systems can be integrated with VIRTUE, an energy storage system which allows companies to store energy generated during periods of low demand and switch to this stored supply at any time.
VIRTUE allows companies to store locally the energy they generate during periods of low demand and switch to this stored energy at any time. On-site renewable generation can be integrated with VIRTUE to provide maximum cost benefit.
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...
