Voltage Regulation Solutions. Delivered.

Voltage and current are constantly changing in distribution systems. Your drives, boards and controls are constantly bombarded with voltage and amperage sags and surges. We know the inverse relationship between voltage (volts) and current (amps) is constantly offsetting. When there is a voltage sag the amperage spikes, and when the voltage surges the amperage sags. All of your controls are exposed to this change 100% of the time. A Voltage Correction Device will correct and hold the voltage to avoid these deviations that slowly wear out control and all process equipment. Recurring maintenance to replace boards, capacitors, and parts is more frequent because of this wear. Not to mention complete downtime to reset equipment and processes. (AVC) Active Voltage Correction or (AVR) Active Voltage Regulation are technologies to provide voltage stability.

AVC or UPS System?

A majority of ups system equipment built for Data Centers does not qualify to correct harsh environment voltage. The Harsh environment in a plant facility requires a robust Industrial UPS solution or (AVC) Active Voltage Correction Device. The sizing and tolerance of an Industrial UPS System vs. sizing a Voltage Correction device is different.

Power Grid Problems

Almost all of these customer power issues can be corrected locally with a Voltage Correction Device or Industrial UPS. Most power anomalies that effect a facility from the utility side are derived from the transmission process. There is a low probability that the Utility Provider is creating bad voltage.

Internally Derived Problems

Voltage sags can arrive from the utility; however, in most cases, the majority of sags are generated inside a building. Power issues derived internally comes from equipment cycling on and off will pull on various phases. It is never constant and voltage is always changing inside a facility.

What is Active Voltage Correction?

Voltage and current are constantly changing in distribution systems. Your drives, boards and controls are constantly bombarded with voltage and amperage sags and surges. We know the inverse relationship between voltage (volts) and current (amps) is constantly offsetting and damaging to them. When there is a voltage sag the amperage spikes, and when the voltage surges the amperage sags. All of your controls are exposed to this change 100% of the time. A Voltage Correction Device will correct and hold the voltage to avoid these deviations that slowly wear out control and all process equipment.

How is Active Voltage Correction Installed?

A system may be sized to pick up an entire facility, specific process line, or down to the individual piece of equipment. A Facility Power Study and possible monitoring will be done to specifically pick up the issues in the plant. The equipment is located near the equipment it is supported. Switchgear distribution sections that support the facility are usually the location to tie in systems to pick up areas of the plant. Systems may also be located outside. Our national team of installation professionals can provide a turn-key installation proposal that reflect delivery, installation and electrical inter-connection.
