Powerstar’s HV MAX Voltage Optimisation solution is suitable for sites responsible for managing and maintaining their own High Voltage Transformer & Electrical Infrastructure. Perfectly suited to large operating loads consistent with businesses in manufacturing, processing, commercial refrigeration, warehousing, printing, office buildings as an example.
Powerstar HV MAX is the only system which utilises an amorphous core transformer complete with integrated electronic-dynamic voltage optimisation technology, thus providing a combined energy saving solution offering efficiency savings on the HV side and energy consumption and carbon reduction savings at the LV side.
Distribution transformers operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, during which time they undergo constant losses. These losses are divided into load losses caused when electricity is passed through the transformer, and no load losses caused irrespective of if electricity is being used. The key to improving transformer efficiency is to reduce no load losses.
Due to the high resistance in amorphous core transformers and the non-crystalline structure allowing for easy and quick magnetisation, both load losses and crucially no load losses are significantly reduced.
