Electric Power Quality
PredictEnergy™ is an energy management system that monitors electric power quality in addition to distributed energy resources and load centers.
Clean, stable and reliable power that is maintained within voltage and frequency tolerances is mandatory for commercial and industrial users.
The quality of the power supplied by our local utility is something largely taken for granted. We flip on the switch, plug in a device or turn on a piece of manufacturing equipment and we expect it to work. Electrical devices, however, require a specific level of voltage, frequency, power quality and stability. If these parameters stray too far from expectations, they can cause issues that range from annoying to downright dangerous.
When was the last time you took a detailed look at the quality of power supplied by your utility?
Helio Energy Solutions is an energy analytics firm that conducts routine power quality monitoring, and we see many power quality challenges: continuity of services, transient voltages and currents, wide voltage variations, and high sinusoidal noise. Often, base issues are compounded by power factors below 0.9 straight from the utility. There are also broad fault and failure reasons including the utility’s power delivery system, outdated equipment, or sometimes it’s your neighbors’ fault with overloaded transformers and big transient power loads. Regardless, when your electrical equipment doesn’t get what it needs, it responds with poor performance, high energy use and disruptive manufacturing outcomes.
However, with advanced monitoring provided by PredictEnergy™, it can help isolate power quality issues and point you in the right direction for a solution. Advanced analytics may be the difference between identifying the problem and deploying a technology solution.
