Solving failures in VFD, DC drives and motors; Enhancing production by 25%, and Slashing energy bill by 9%

Abstract: In this case study, a world leader in non-ferrous metal industry engaged in the manufacturing ACSR conductors for HT and EHV electrical power transmissions and distributions, had been facing high incidence of operational problems across its plants A and B, due to bad Power Quality and high harmonic distortions with its electrical power systems. The problem arose because of two reasons. First, it was using over 60% Non-Linear-Loads in the forms of DC-drives in rolling mills, Variable-Frequency-Drives (VFD) in the conductor making process and PLC in control system.
