Voltage Optimisation vs Stabilisers & Regulators
At Johnson & Phillips, our voltage optimisation services goes much further than companies that use just a stabiliser or regulator. As discussed previous, a voltage regulator is often referred to as a step down transformer. The stabiliser is a bit more complex but it can be described as a voltage regulator with added electronics that result in a constant output.
We are a UK high voltage company that provide businesses with money saving solutions such as our voltage optimisation unit, which could pay for itself in less than 3 years. Below is a brief overview of voltage regulators and stabilisers compared to the more efficiency voltage optimisation.
The purpose of a voltage regulator is to primarily minimise the variations of the voltage in order to protect the equipment. The regulators within a power distribution network may be in the form of a substation. They come in two forms, which include a step regulator and an induction regulator and both reduce the voltage but also increase the current, which therefore does not save any energy.
A voltage stabiliser will constantly measure the voltage from the electricity supply and then compares it against the voltage that is required. The input that is coming in is connected to the primary winding and the output is received from the secondary winding. If there is a drop, the electromagnetic relays add more turns to the secondary winding for a higher voltage. Alternatively, if the voltage drops, the output side will keep the same voltage.
Using a Voltage Optimisation Unit is the best method to save energy and improve the electrical efficiency. Voltage Regulators and Stabilisers only provide a small amount of benefits compared to voltage that is properly managed by an optimisation unit.
