Our approach to energy efficiency:
The approach that we take to gain electricity efficiency in existing facilities is to install power treatment technologies to the individual loads in a facility and, where needed, to install passive or active power quality correction at either individual loads, individual branch circuits, or the master service entrance.
The electricity savings from power treatment technologies originate from the following concepts:
- 1. Lighting Correction,
- 2. Wiring and Distribution Capacity,
- 3. Power factor Correction,
- 4. Line Loss and Voltage Drop.
Today, the trend of achieving greater lighting efficiencies have come in the form of fluorescent and HID lighting. Though this lighting is more efficient than incandescent lighting, it is also true that neither fluorescent nor HID's are maximally efficient when connected to standard, sinusoidal waveform AC power.
We have developed an entire line of special purpose waveform modification based lighting controllers that significantly reduce total energy consumed by these lighting fixtures, yet can achieve significant operating cost savings without reducing visible spectrum light output.
Secondly, all of our lighting controller technologies have been designed to suppress or trap broadband harmonic content from the load side of the device, therefore adding to the systems cascade effect of both improved overall efficiency and improved overall facility power quality.
Line Loss and Voltage Drop:
Real line losses and voltage drops in commercial and industrial facilities far exceed the amounts, and effects determined by classroom theories.
Unlike these traditional calculation methods, which only consider isolated loads and circuits, real voltage drops in real facilities have wide ranging effects on the voltage and current values in the entire facility.
