Are you paying penalties for poor plant power factor?
Talk to Energy Correction Options about the best solution for you. We can supply custom and ready made systems, or even components, ranging from basic contactor control, through to SCR switched systems.
Services ECO can provide:
* Site investigation * Power monitoring * Engineering support
These services help to ensure the correct equipment is used for your application. We have extensive experience in Mining, Industrial and Commercial operations.
The installation of Power Factor Improvement equipment at your site will provide you with the following benefits:
Significant annual cost savings in Energy charges off your current Electricity Bill (where the tariff is kVA demand). This will be an on going savings for the life of the equipment.
Short payback period - usually 1 to 3 years.
Meet your legal obligations by complying with the Australian Standards and Electricity Distribution Code (EDC) ensuring you satisfy your Network Provider’s requirement for Supply of Electricity.
Reduce the strain on the Network Provider’s supply system and help avoid any possible “blackouts” in your area.
Free up spare capacity on your Transformer and Main Switchboard and therefore reduce the total power required by the site. This provides you with spare capacity for future load growth without the need to upgrade the infrastructure.
Reduce the supply system losses (I 2 R losses) in cables, transformers and switchboards ensuring longer life from the installation.
The installation will have a more stable and improved voltage regulation ensuring motors and plant operate at maximum efficiency.
The installation will have reduced existing harmful system harmonics and therefore reduced the occurrence of power quality related equipment problems.
Helping to minimize the Greenhouse Gas Emission (CO2) by reducing the amount of natural resources required to be processed for producing useful electricity.
