Today's power grid complexity and the continued emergence of electronics in commercial and industrial operations can be intimidating, even for the most seasoned engineers and electricians.
Because power quality issues can turn into the most mysterious problems, NETTAN Solutions is constantly developing its understanding of the matter. On the floor, variable speed drives (VFDs) trip and shut down processes, programmable logic controllers (PLCs) give false alarms and breakers trip inadvertently. In offices, computers freeze, lights flicker and an annoying noise is heard on phone lines. From a practical standpoint, power quality is a measure of how well the electrical system supports its own processes.
If there are no malfunctions of electrical loads, it is possible that there is no concern but if there are outages, overheating transformers, computer freezes or unexplained equipment downtime, there are more likely power quality-related problems. And it may just be the tip of the iceberg because the later the solutions are implemented, the more costly those problems will be as time goes by and the more risky an unplanned shutdown may occur.
NETTAN Solutions acts as a consulting partner to ensure the compliance of the customer's network with industrial standards (IEEE 1159, IEEE 519, C.25-01, IEC 61000-4-30, EN 50160, NFPA 70B, etc.). Our team includes qualified and experienced professionals who can manage any risk or problem associated to power quality. There is always a reward with smart energy management.
NETTAN Solutions advocates the following methodology which is personalised to suit each situation.
