What is it?
Flickering of voltage, lights, can mostly be derived internally from a facility.
The reaction to changing loads inside a facility or complex is an ever-changing dynamic. Especially with industry which is producing products, manufacturing, or processing. Depending on how dynamic the load fluctuations are, the variation in flicker or sudden voltage compensating power can increase and decrease lighting rapidly.
- Activating and deactivating large loads
- Reciprocating saws, stone crushers, metal stamping, lasers, process equipment, assembly line, elevators
- Starting engines, eccentric drives
- Electric arc furnaces
- Pulsed power levels (oscillation package control)
- Wind turbines, magnetic resonance tomography
- Welding machines and systems, inverters
- Inrush of all kinds from manufacturing
Direct Benefits to Active Voltage Correction for Flickering:
- Reduce DOWNTIME
- Reduce/ Eliminate voltage/amperage fluctuation events wearing all computer components
- Reduce/ Eliminate voltage/amperage fluctuation events wearing all drives, PLC’s, and control equipment.
- Lower Maintenance and replacement parts cost
- Constant Voltage Environment for all facility equipment
- Ability to monitor and understand load dynamics and incoming power
Have an ICP site survey done to survey your facility and install a power metering device.
When you install equipment that will correct power and hold voltage within your facility, you will be providing your facility with protection against all outside influences of power. Halting wear and tear on other equipment in the facility by having stable voltage and power factor is the goal. The long term positives are lowered operations and maintenance costs by limiting voltage and amperage anomalies inside the facility. It is common to vet these issues by installing a monitoring device at the service entrance of the facility utility power. This is a low-cost method to really understand these issues and to make a proper diagnosis.
We are available to review electrical one-lines, Power Reports, Demand Usage, and any other data on your facility power.
