What is a Rolling Brownout?

2 Minute read

A rolling brownout is a continual sag in voltage in the utility grid distribution. Rolling brownouts are cascading drains on the utility infrastructure that do not allow the supply side of the utility power to catch up and maintain a constant nominal voltage. The result is a continual reduction of voltage power, or sag condition.…

What is a Voltage Regulator?

4 Minute read

A Voltage regulator is a component that that provides a consistent voltage output, set to a voltage nominal position to hold. A voltage regulator can provide a stabilization of voltage that is preset, and can hold that voltage to avoid certain swings and disruptions to the components it is supporting. Where are Voltage Regulators Used?…
