Electrical Losses within a site
• Even after multiple measures have been applied to dave energy,
the majority of installations still use electricity in an inefficient
way
• Since motors and other inductive loads represent 70% to 80% of
the total installed power, the quantity of energy losses is still high.
• The losses do not only affect the electricity bill, but also the cost
of raw material, labor and production.
Total Solution
• The electrical installations, unknowingly, suffer from energy losses du to
harmonics, over-voltage, transiants, phase unbalance and incompatible
impedance .
• The effects of magnetic waves in a site are generally underestimated as a
source to save energy. In the world of electricity all sites are looked by the
energy source as a circuit having an inductance in series with a resistance –
therefore looking at the problem “magnetically” seams very logical.
PowerGUARD treats the entire system by reducing the magnetic fields and
improving the power quality and the total consumption
• PowerGUARD considers the site as a simple inductive load. PowerGUARD
reduces the impedance of the site and therefore improves the transport of
energy and reduces consumption.
Total Solution
• The cause of low Power Factor is the presence of inductive
reactance in the circuit. To improve the PF to 1.0, we can
either add a capacitive reactance (Capacitor) or reduce the
inductive reactance (PowerGUARD)
• A commun practice to improve the power factor ne pratique
commune pis to add capacitors. This method reduces the
quantity of reactive energy supplied by the source, but also
can creates resonance in the circuit and increase the
temperature of equipments and transformers by creating
over-voltage situations
• Whereas PowerGUARD allows to produce savings that can
be verified and at the same time increases the power factor
and protects the equipments against surges of current and
voltage.
How PowerGUARD works
PG Current generated
in phase #1….
…is immediatly
delivered to Phase
#2….
…and to Phase #3,
therefore
neutralizing the
Reactive current
By magnetic induction, a current is created and filtered to 60 HZ, this current is leading the voltage by
more than 90 degrees, allowing it to flow to the opposite direction toward the source and neutralizing
the reactive current
