Hi all ,
Advanced Electrical / Electronic technology hardware at times play havoc with the electrical system by introducing high harmonics and related problems. All forms of computers, electronic chokes, VFDs are some of the villains in the system. These advanced technology items have given us a host of benefits, but also adds to the woes of the energy managers.
All the energy managers are trying their best to optimise the energy usage, increase total asset life and reduce operating expenditure. I have given below a link to a very informative article on the subject. Please click on the link to view the original article.
