PS&C Power Quality Testing

                                                    

As a supplier of power conditioning equipment for critical real-time applications, Power Systems & Controls (PS&C) has learned the importance of change. Whether changes are due to additional load or new technology, our customers can rest assured that their equipment is capable of handling their needs. Due to problems that can arise when newer technology is coupled with the old, PS&C consistently strives to develop compatible service enhancements so that our customers’ critical loads are never compromised.

In the past, it has been common practice to document the performance of a UPS system at start-up. However due to the various power quality problems we’ve encountered over the years, PS&C is pleased to announce that we now offer a power quality monitoring service. In our continuous effort to maintain state-of-the-art test disturbance equipment, we have added monitoring equipment which collects and qualifies electrical data on almost every aspect of three phase power system. This includes voltage, current, frequency, impedance, power factor, demand and all other types of electrical disturbances.

PS&C offers this service to our customers of any others interested in avoiding or resolving power quality problems. PS&C will work with your facilities’ personnel or electrical engineer to collect accurate data independent of your equipment manufacturer. If the power quality study has not been done prior to equipment purchase, we recommend that it be conducted at start-up. For a small fee PS&C will provide a comprehensive power study which will serve as a baseline for your facility. The study should be updated each time major changes in equipment are made or every two years to document your current power system performance.

Another power quality issue of concern to the power conditioning industry is Total Harmonic Distortion or THD. The IEEE 519.1992 recommended standard outlines the amount of harmonic current that can be reflected to a power source. In addition to the above, the power study now offered by PS&C can also identify harmonic current sources to determine your overall power quality and tell you if your THD problems are self-induced.

PS&C Supports Fort Bragg

                                                                        

Fort Bragg was established in 1918 as an artillery training ground for the US Army. Since then, Fort Bragg has become one of the largest United States Army installations in the world, and is home to the US Army Airborne and Special Forces, as well as, US Army Force Command. In recent years, Fort Bragg has seen an increase in their operational tempo and deployment to combat zones due to their campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq. Power Systems & Controls will be supporting Fort Bragg’s 50Hz frequency conversion requirements.

PS&C will be providing multiple rotary frequency converters to the US Army to provide the required international power in support of operational readiness. The converters will be designed with NEMA 4 protection as the units are expected to be exposed to some of the harshest environments imaginable. Fort Bragg chose Power Systems & Controls because of our previous past performance and the superior design proposed. We look forward to supporting Fort Bragg and helping the US Army be prepared to respond at a moment’s notice.

Fisker Automotive Selects PS&C

                                                                       

Fisker Automotive Inc. is an electrical vehicle automaker. They were one of the world’s first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle manufacturers, which culminated in the creation of the Fisher Karma. It debuted at the 2008 North American International Auto Show. Production of the Fisher Karma began in 2009 but was suspended in 2012 with a total of 2,450 vehicles built. In 2014, Fisker was purchased by Wanxiang America Corp, a Chinese auto parts maker and the company was renamed New Fisker. Fisker is seen as the only company in position to compete with Tesla for the emerging electric automotive market. Fisker will continue production in 2016 and has selected Power Systems & Controls to help support their California plant’s frequency conversion needs.

PS&C was selected by Fisker to provide (2) 650kVA rotary frequency converters to power their manufacturing lines with the 50Hz power they required. PS&C was selected because of our past performance and ability to provide the highest quality power possible. We look forward to supporting their operations and the future of the automotive industry in general.
