Powerstar voltage optimisation systems
Powerstar voltage optimisation systems are available in three variations, providing a voltage management solutions portfolio that ensure the correct engineering solution is adopted for each site to maximise savings and efficiency:
- Summary: Amorphous core HV/LV transformer with integrated voltage optimisation.
- Benefits: Average electricity consumption savings of 17%.
- For use in: Sites operating a (HV) supply with conventional transformer and high voltage.
- Summary: Fixed voltage optimisation system. Provides a set level reduction across tap range.
- Benefits: Average electricity consumption savings of 10%-12%.
- For use in: Sites operating a LV supply with a high, yet stable incoming voltage profile.
- Summary: Electronic-Dynamic optimisation. Maintains voltage at a constant, stable level.
- Benefits: Average electricity consumption savings of 12%-15%.
- For use in: Sites operating a (LV) supply with a high and fluctuating voltage profile.
powerstar energy storage system
The Powerstar Virtue energy storage system can be integrated with any new or existing Powerstar MAX or Powerstar HV MAX installation. The solution harnesses the negative power (back EMF) feedback from Powerstar voltage optimisation technology to charge a storage medium. The electricity saved and stored from Powerstar to be diverted into a storage medium to be used at any time, including times of peak demand.
- Summary: Energy storage solution that is integrated with Powerstar MAX or HV MAX systems
- Benefits: Savings from VO are stored in a storage medium for use when required to reduce electricity costs and increase supply stability. Energy generated from on-site renewables can also be integrated into the storage system to make renewable energy reliable
- For use in: Large electricity consumers, national grids and demand side operators.
