Powerstar HV MAX amorphous core distribution transformer

Powerstar HV MAX amorphous core transformer

If a company is operating its own HV/LV distribution transformer the most effective option is to optimize the voltage at the HV (High Voltage) side by replacing the current inefficient transformer with Powerstar HV MAX.

As Powerstar HV MAX systems are manufactured to fit specific site characteristics a variety of sizes can be created. The input can be altered to best suit a site and the output can be user defined.

Powerstar HV MAX is the only system which utilises an amorphous core HV/LV distribution transformer with fully integrated electronically regulated (MAX) voltage optimization technology. This unique capability minimizes installation costs substantially, especially where access and/or space limitations exist.

The flexibility of the HV MAX design allows for the electronic-dynamic voltage optimization 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 optimization technology through energy consumption and carbon reduction savings, as a result, annual energy consumption savings from Powerstar HV MAX average around 13%.

Is Powerstar HV MAX Right for My Business?

Powerstar HV MAX is ideal for businesses with the following profile:

  • Operates its own HV/LV supply
  • Has an inefficient HV/LV distribution transformer on site with high losses
  • Has a high incoming voltage profile

Other capabilities:

  • Powerstar HV MAX can be integrated with the VIRTUE energy storage system
  • Powerstar HV MAX systems have provided significant savings for healthcare estates, supermarkets, utility companies, education facilities, government buildings and new build developments

If Powerstar HV MAX does not fit your requirements then our LV (Low Voltage) range of voltage optimization systems are available through either Powerstar LITE or Powerstar MAX.




Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): keep your business flying high

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...
