How to save electricity & reduce base cost with custom transformers

8th October 2015

Save electricity through strategic planning  What is 3 phase power?

3 phase power is harnessed by most electrical grids worldwide for electric generation, transmission and distribution. By carrying 3 alternating currents of the same frequency and voltage (each phase synced to reach its peak at one third of a cycle), 3 phase power provides consistent power delivery which is highly efficient and subsequently hugely economical.

This is largely attributed to the reduction of energy loss during transmission.

The same cost benefits of using 3 phase electricity to control energy loss and achieve voltage optimisation can be leveraged in industrial and commercial applications, through the installation of step up and step down transformers. Such electrical devices convert a high energy supply into a lower energy supply or vice versa.

This gives industrial users the flexibility to vary power delivery, ensuring large equipment such as motors (compatible with three phase power) run on optimum performance and greater energy efficiency. This is especially applicable for industries who rely on heavy duty equipment with high energy consumptions to sustain their business processes. The strategic use of 3 phase transformers can also support energy management systems, introducing an effective cost control measure.

This is because with the right three phase transformer connections, you can minimise energy wastage and sustain consistent power delivery of optimised voltage.  This control mechanism helps save electricity whilst helping to preserve the integrity of your machines to enable longevity.  

With rising energy bills this can be a critical factor in helping you drive down your base cost.    Made to order custom transformers may be the solution for businesses with specialist needs whilst other businesses may simply require standard electrical transformers to step down or step up voltage. Either way, all our transformers are manufactured to UK and international safety standards and are available with fast delivery. With over 20 years experience, our products help businesses across many industries, operating in both the public and private sectors, get the most out of their energy supply.
