ECOTAP VPD FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS


For industrial companies or important public bodies, the use of transformers regulated with ECOTAP VPD is an economically interesting way to become independent from voltage fluctuations in the grid or to significantly cut the energy consumption of equipment without restricting function. The high-speed resistor-type tap-changer principle used with ECOTAP VPD has been ensuring a stable supply of voltage for almost 100 years for high-voltage grids and supergrids the world over. MR has the longest operating experience in regard to such equipment. 50% of the world's electricity flows through our products. Thanks to ECOTAP VPD, we now also have a solution for industrial distribution grids.

 

1. STABILIZING INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES IN VOLATILE GRIDS.

For industrial processes to run reliably, they require a stable voltage supply within a narrowly defined band. However, in many parts of the world medium voltage is subject to major fluctuations. As a result, production cycles may be interrupted, motors may not start or control systems may crash.

Fitted in transformers, ECOTAP VPD guarantees that consumers are supplied with a stable voltage in all circumstances. This is done by compensating for the deviation of the medium voltage from the nominal voltage by changing the transmission ratio. Fluctuations in voltage (both increases and decreases) are thereby compensated for with such ease that industrial processes run stably and without interruptions, saving you precious production time and money.

2. 2.REDUCING ENERGY COSTS BY OPTIMIZING VOLTAGE.

The energy consumption of devices such as frequency-controlled, motors, heaters or lighting is affected by factors such as the voltage with which the equipment is supplied. If this voltage is greater than that actually needed, the device consumes more energy than necessary. Using a transformer with ECOTAP VPD voltage regulation in the industrial distribution grid allows equipment to be supplied with a voltage optimized for it, so energy consumption is reduced without the function of devices being impaired. Depending on the circumstances, this can reduce energy costs by up to 10 percent!
