Common Power Quality Factors Affecting Transformers

Commercial buildings commonly have a 208/120 V transformer in a delta-wye configuration to feed receptacles. Single-phase, non-linear loads connected to the receptacles produce triple harmonics, which add up in the neutral. When this neutral current reaches the transformer, it is reflected into the delta primary winding, which causes overheating and transformer failures.

Finding energy waste with Power Quality Management

Saving energy and minimising energy waste are two of the most critical aspects of energy use.  No matter what industry you work in, looking for energy savings means looking at your power consumption rates and developing a power quality management energy-saving plan.
