Products to improve power quality in industry

There are several types of electrical products that help improve power quality in industry. 

These products can be broadly classified into the following categories that we present to you below.

Most common solutions to improve industrial power quality

The solutions to solve the 7 most common steady state problems are: 

1.- To diagnose the problems: Power quality monitoring and analysis equipment.

2.- To optimize the Power Factor: Reactive power compensation equipment.

3.- To regulate voltage drops or increases: Voltage regulation and stabilization equipment.‍

4.- To mitigate harmonic distortion: Harmonic filters.

5.- To correct unbalance, flicker and the aforementioned problems: Active filters (APF) and Statcoms.

6.- For high frequency noise: Line filters.

7.- For frequency deviations: There is no solution. 

For the 3 usual transient state problems: 

1.- Transients: Transient overvoltage suppression equipment and line reactors. 

2.- Sags and Swells: Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), Line Filters, Active Power Filters (APF) and Statcoms.

3.- Interruptions: Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS).

There are eight types of electrical products that help improve power quality in industry. Each of these types of equipment has a specific purpose to improve power quality and protect equipment from electrical disturbances. For example:

  • Power quality monitoring and analysis equipment is used to identify power quality problems.
  • Voltage regulation and stabilization equipment is used to maintain stable voltage levels. 
  • Surge suppression equipment protects against surges and transients.
  • UPS provides backup power in the event of a power outage. 
  • Active power filters and harmonic filters are used to eliminate harmonic distortion and other power quality problems.
  • Power factor correction equipment is used to correct power factor and improve energy efficiency. 
  • Line reactors help protect equipment against voltage spikes and other electrical disturbances. 

At Diram we have active filters and perform power quality studies to optimize your current operation. Contact our consultants to review your plant's needs and recommend the best option for you.
