At FMG, we understand the critical role of power quality in maintaining the efficiency, reliability, and longevity of electrical systems. As a leading provider of comprehensive electrical services, we offer advanced Power Quality Analysis services to help businesses identify and address issues related to voltage fluctuations, harmonics, power factor, and more. With our state-of-the-art equipment and skilled professionals, we are dedicated to optimizing your power quality and ensuring smooth operations.
Measurement of Total VA, W, and VAR Power as well as Values per Phase:
Our Power Quality Analysis service includes accurate measurement of total Volt-Ampere (VA), Watts (W), and Volt-Ampere Reactive (VAR) power, allowing us to assess the overall power consumption and evaluate the system's efficiency.
We also measure these values individually for each phase, providing a detailed understanding of the power distribution and identifying any phase imbalances or load issues.
Integration of All DC Components:
Our analysis service integrates all direct current (DC) components within the power system, enabling us to identify and address potential issues caused by DC offset, such as transformer saturation, equipment overheating, and increased losses. By considering these DC components, we ensure a comprehensive analysis that reflects the true power quality of your system.
Capture Transients as Short as 1/256 of the Period:
FMG's advanced equipment allows us to capture transient events with exceptional precision, detecting disturbances as short as 1/256 of the electrical period. These transients can cause voltage spikes, dips, or interruptions, leading to equipment malfunction, data loss, or production downtime. Our ability to capture and analyze these transients helps pinpoint the root causes and develop effective solutions.
Measurement and Calculation of Harmonics up to the 50th Order:
Harmonics, characterized by non-sinusoidal waveform distortions, can result in equipment overheating, premature aging, and electromagnetic interference. Our Power Quality Analysis service includes the measurement and calculation of harmonics up to the 50th order, providing insights into the harmonic content of the system. This allows us to determine the severity of harmonics, identify their sources, and implement appropriate mitigation measures.
To evaluate the suitability of transformers for non-linear loads, we calculate the K-factor—a measure of the transformer's ability to withstand harmonic distortions and the associated heating effects. By assessing the K-factor, we ensure that transformers are appropriately rated and capable of handling the specific harmonic loads, mitigating the risk of equipment damage and power quality issues.
Power Factor (PF) and Displacement Power Factor (DPF) Calculations:
Power factor is a crucial parameter that reflects the efficiency of electrical systems. We measure and calculate both Power Factor (PF) and Displacement Power Factor (DPF) to evaluate the system's reactive power consumption and identify any power factor correction requirements. Improving power factor helps reduce energy costs, enhance system capacity, and improve overall power quality.
