Energy Cost Reduction through Load Balancing and Load Shedding

Sunday, 15 May, 2011

SCR controllers firing in phase angle degrade the power factor while increasing harmonics and electrical noise. A poor power factor drives increased power generation resulting in high energy costs and more CO2 emissions.

Predictive load management (PLM) eliminates these drawbacks resulting in more effective performance through load-balancing and load-shedding strategies. Improving the power factor, controlling the demand charge and reducing peak consumption during ON peak times will result in substantial savings.

In addition, the PLM function helps to improve quality of the main power supply and ultimately reduces CO2 emissions.
