Latest in Power Quality Technology Now Available from YHI
A system with good power quality can help customers extend the life of their electronic equipment and protect it from damage due to overload problems. Good power quality also reduces the cost and human resource outlays that occur when power is accidentally disconnected.
Today’s automation equipment benefits us with a more convenient life style and cost savings from higher production efficiency, however it can also bring significant power distortion problems that can lead to energy loss, increasing costs and many other power quality issues.
Power quality is a major influence on power efficiency. A clean and efficient power system normally generates a sinusoidal current waveform, but the electric equipment used in today’s industrial automation industry generates non-sinusoidal currents that tend to cause power quality problems. Voltage or current distortion, reactive power impact, and unbalanced loads, are common problems that lower power reliability and power efficiency and also increase operation costs. Major concerns in the industrial automation industry are how to improve power quality and how to manage power grids.
Delta’s APF2000 Series can effectively enhance power quality using real time current monitoring and reactive power compensation. After connecting with the grid, the wave-shaped current is analyzed for harmonic current and for compensation with reactive power via a current transformer.
The APF2000 then produces an opposite current to the power supply system, which can filter up to 50 harmonics. In addition, the APF 2000 Series can compensate the phase lead-lag reactive power with the actual current phase to enhance the power factor of the grid, and effectively increase power quality and efficiency. Not only does this lower the voltage of the electrical power device and eliminate unnecessary cost, but it can also reduce wire damage. More importantly, this can increase the power factor of the system and avoid penalties from utility companies due to low power factor.
Delta’s APF2000 adopts the industry’s highest standard 32-bit digital microprocessor to instantly compensate for all types of harmonics for ultimate power quality improvement. Perfect control of harmonic distortion reduces power loss and heat generation.
The APF2000 is compact in design for all users to manage their space efficiently and is mounted with 65,536-color TFT HMI for more realistic images and a vivid display. The APF2000 Series offers a user-friendly interface with Delta’s advanced full-color Human Machine Interface’s (HMI) touch screen, customers can complete a setup with their fingertips. The APF2000 Series is also integrated with Delta’s industrial motion control networking system and cloud computing to collect data on customer power usage. This not only enhances power quality, but also monitors a customer’s real time energy consumption via advanced communication technology, which reduces possible loss of power transmission and improves overall system reliability.
Electrical power has always played an important role in industrial development. The quality of electrical power closely relates to the speed of a country’s industrial development. Over the past few years, the smart grid has become increasingly popular. How to enhance power quality has also become a major concern for many developed countries. The integration of technologies such as intelligent monitoring, renewable energy and data communication is going to have an important impact on the development of the smart grid. The Delta APF2000 Series is an essential tool for energy-savings as the advanced power management capabilities effectively control power quality.
