Ortea Next web site: a reference point for Power Quality.
Industrial customers are becoming more aware of the direct costs associated with the electrical energy consumed by their machines and processes as it shows up every month on their utility bill. However, the indirect costs associated with poor power quality while just as significant, are less obvious.
These costs show up in the forms of:
- plant downtime,
- equipment replacement,
- lost work in process,
- additional labor.
Power quality is related to fluctuations in the electrical supply in the form of momentary interruptions, voltage sags or swells, transients, harmonic distortion, electrical noise, and flickering lights, among others.
However, power quality events are largely untracked, and as a result,can take out a process as many as 20 to 30 times a year, costing industrial customers a large amount of money.
In the Ortea Next web site you can find information about Power Quality issues and solutions, in order to identify and mitigate power quality events in your company.
