Achieving Consistent And On-Demand Power
April 29, 2015
To combat the potential of a voltage overload in the time of an unexpected surge, fault or bad storm, electrical utility companies rely on a voltage regulator to automatically maintain a constant level of voltage and control the voltage output of a plant. Ideally, the supply of voltage should remain consistent even during a storm or in times of high demand such as the need for air conditioning during hot summer weather or at an entertainment venue requiring large amounts of power.
But the ability to maintain that level of consistency comes into question when voltage regulators are not kept in top working order. This creates the potential for power outages, blackouts and downtime with the potential to translate into high costs and undesirable repercussions for the utility company and its customers. Even if these episodes are brief in nature, the power failures have to potential to affect critical infrastructures such as water supplies, telecommunications networks, and hospitals. Because of this, it’s important to establish a plan for routine maintenance as well as to create controls to mitigate associated risk.
While it’s always important to establish a consistent maintenance schedule, unexpected seasonal storms or other acts of nature have the potential to leave voltage regulatorsvulnerable. Because of the unpredictable nature of many of these events, there’s a chance an inconsistency in voltage could happen at the worst possible time whether that’s a national holiday, a weather-related emergency or a time of prime usage.
