Electrical harmonic distortion is an issue which can affect the reliability and efficiency of electrical networks. Modern electrical loads are increasingly controlled by an electronic interface in order to improve control and efficiency. This electronic control has the side effect of distorting the existing electrical supply which can cause other electrical and electronic equipment to overheat and becomes unreliable leading to failure.
Premium Power has the expertise to design, supply, commission and project manage harmonic filtering solution for industrial, commercial and utility customers. We can survey your site and assess the level and impact of harmonic distortion cause by existing or proposed new load. In doing this, we can then design and install the most cost effective filtering solutions.
Voltage sags are caused by abrupt increases in loads such as short circuits or faults, motors starting, or electric heaters turning on, or they are caused by abrupt increases in source impedance, typically caused by a loose connection.
Voltage sags can arrive from the utility; however, in most cases, the majority of sags are generated inside a building. Modern industrial electrical loads are extremely sensitive to brief voltage sags caused by electrical network operations and atmospheric conditions.
These sags can cause very expensive equipment failure and downtime in mission critical production and IT systems. Premium Power has the expertise to help its customers monitor and control this issue. We can supply and support solutions which guarantee equipment uptime for any size of load from a single control circuit throughout the entire plant.
Our solutions are compact, cost effective and easy to install.

We have increased reliability and largely reduced downtime to this large food plant in the South-East of Ireland. The plant, which manufactures nutritions, had issues with harmonics and needed to ensure reliability of plant.
