In the primary-elements industry, primary raw materials such as timber, agricultural products, coal, ores, metals and minerals are processed to create the basic materials for industrial production. The energy-intensive machinery required for these processes, such as grinding mills, centrifuges or compactors, are equipped with modern, large-scale drives that are controlled by power-electronic drive controllers. The reactive power connection and the harmonic currents and commutation losses caused by the power electronics can negatively impact both the energy efficiency and the voltage quality. The large number of frequency converters also poses further problems for small or medium-sized electric drives in the production processes, such as in the food processing industry.
With customer-specific system solutions for reactive-power compensation and eliminating system perturbations that disrupt the supply voltage, Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen is able to ensure both energy efficiency and the availability of the production facilities.
