Sites operating their own HV distribution transformer can enhance efficiencies directly at the source by upgrading their transformer to a super low loss amorphous core transformer. However, the benefits of a new distribution transformer can be considerably enhanced when combined with voltage management technology.
Voltage Management for High Voltage Transformers
By combining an amorphous core distribution transformer with electronic-dynamic voltage management, inefficiencies in the High Voltage infrastructure can be greatly reduced in addition to generating additional savings in energy consumption savings and reductions in carbon emissions through the low voltage side technology.
Powerstar HV MAX provides a combined solution to two common problems, combining a super low-loss amorphous core high voltage/low voltage transformer with integrated electronic-dynamic voltage optimisation technology, allowing for 11,000V input (other inputs available) and regulated 380V, or user-defined, output.
Voltage optimisation is required because in the UK, the majority of sites are supplied with voltage that is higher than necessary to run on-site electrical equipment optimally, leading to increased energy consumption, energy costs, CO2 emissions, and wear and tear on electrical equipment.
A bespoke voltage management solution to energy efficiency
The use of these energy-efficient systems is matched to a client’s sites, voltage profile, and priorities following a thorough installation feasibility study to identify the opportunities that will deliver maximum benefit and value. By combining voltage management with an amorphous core distribution voltage transformer, which is 99% efficient, it can provide businesses with enhanced savings of up to 13%.
Delivered as a bespoke solution, HV-MAX Voltage transformer has the ability to combine an amorphous core transformer with the management technology in a single footprint, or install it as two separate entities, with the voltage management solution installed in the plant room. Additionally, the patented Powerstar technology is supported by a 100% savings guarantee and up to a 15-year warranty.
Is this the right solution for my site?
