The Powerstar range of fixed voltage optimization systems provide a set level reduction across a predefined tap range. The optimized voltage will match the incoming voltage profile, albeit reduced by a set amount.
Powerstar fixed voltage optimization systems are effective energy savings solutions for companies looking to reduce electricity consumption and associated carbon emissions. The benefits of installing a Powerstar fixed voltage optimization system are:
Powerstar fixed voltage optimization systems are ideal for companies with the following profile;
An example of this is visualized on the chart (right) with the voltage profile through a Powerstar fixed voltage optimization system characterized through the blue line.
Sites with more unstable or fluctuating voltage would benefit from electronic variable voltage optimization system provided by Powerstar MAX, as represented by the green line in the chart.
The Powerstar fixed voltage optimization range is available in a range of sizes from 50kVA to 3,000kVA, and with 5 to 25V tap settings.
Additional options include harmonic mitigation winding, HMI (Human Machine Interface), Automatic voltage reduction bypass and manual switch bypass.
The Powerstar systems are not off the shelf solutions and are engineered to suit the voltage characteristics of each site.
Please see our dimensions table for typical case sizes for the Powerstar voltage optimization systems.
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...
