Power Factor Correction
Power quality is critical to efficient operation of equipment. One contributing element to power quality is power factor.
Voltage optimisation aims to reduce the voltage received by electrical equipment to improve operating efficiency as well as reduce energy costs and power demand. It can improve power quality by filtering harmonic and transient voltages as well as balancing phase voltages.
Network providers supply power to customers at a higher nominal value than generally required to operate equipment. They do this to ensure that all customers receive acceptable voltage levels taking into account voltage drop and customer loading. This means that the voltage levels consumed are generally higher than that required to efficiently operate equipment, and can results in over voltage issues such as overheating and malfunctions, as well as increased energy costs.
Voltage optimisation devices are installed in series with the incoming supply and the end user equipment to reduce the voltage down to optimal levels for equipment operation. Further, the ability to adjust the incoming voltage allows for a reduction in harmonics and transient voltage spikes to ensure a stable and reliable power supply to plant and equipment.
The benefits of voltage optimisation include improved power quality, less equipment maintenance and improved equipment life, and reduced energy consumption. This can provide significant cost savings.
Captech are exclusive Australian and New Zealand distributors of ORTEA voltage optimisation and energy saving systems.
ORTEA’s OPTInet Plus voltage optimisation systems optimise an incoming power supply resulting in reduced energy usage and cost savings. The systems use a unique electro mechanical power circuit and sophisticated electronic controls to deliver voltage regulation, exceptional performance, robustness, fast response times and operating efficiency.
OPTInet Plus adjusts the incoming voltage to what is required for the site equipment to operate at an optimum level. The energy saving system also regulates the incoming voltage, out of balance phases or overvoltage experienced on the network.
Each system is custom built to suit the exact needs of an individual site, determined through a site survey and study.
