The area’s leading power quality experts offer a comprehensive look at power factor that affects commercial & industrial business utility charges. This seminar presents power factor related equipment and procedures to reduce these penalties. pqulogo

 

Power Factor Utility Penalties

 

Your utility company may charge an additional fee if your power factor is low. Low power factor also reduces your electrical system’s distribution capacity by increasing current flow and causing voltage drops.

Our free seminar describes power factor and explains how to improve your power factor, reduce penalties and even receive a credit from your utility provider. Join us for this short 60 minute LIVE presentation. 

Why Improve Your Power Factor?

Some of the benefits of improving your power factor are as follows:

Your utility bill will be smaller. Low power factor requires an increase in the electric utility’s generation and transmission capacity to handle the reactive power component caused by inductive loads. Utilities usually charge a penalty fee to customers with power factors less than 0.95. You can avoid this additional fee by increasing your power factor.

Your electrical system’s branch capacity will increase. Uncorrected power factor will cause power losses in your distribution system. You may experience voltage drops as power losses increase. Excessive voltage drops can cause overheating and premature failure of motors and other inductive equipment.

The area’s leading power quality experts offer an introduction to generator docking stations, their application, problems & solutions in today’s electrical environments.

This webinar presents generator docking station related equipment, procedures, and required NEC compliance.

Join us during the lunch hour from Noon to 1 P.M. (Central Time Zone) for a short 60 minute LIVE presentation. 

 

Generator Docking Stations & NEC 2017: Article 700.3 (F) Compliance

The loss of electric power during recent catastrophic weather events rendered critical infrastructure and facilities inoperative without having the means to restore power at these sites quickly and safely. This led to the addition of Article 700.3 (F) to the 2017 NEC. Article 700.3 (F) requires the installation of a permanent means of connecting a temporary power source while the main emergency power source is taken offline for maintenance or testing.

The easiest and most affordable solution to this new requirement is a Generator Docking Station. Generator Docking Stations quickly and safely connect a portable energy source to any business or public building, protecting facilities from an expensive and potentially dangerous power outage. In addition, they can provide a connection for load banks utilized in system testing, and protect against theft and hazardous disconnects.

Topics Covered:

  • Review of NEC 2017 – Article 700.3 (F)
  • What is a Generator Docking Station and where/when are they used?
  • How a Generator Docking Station enables compliance with NEC Article 700.3 (F)
  • Applications for Generator Docking stations.
  • Selection criteria and the necessity for requiring UL1008 listed devices
  • Customization, accessories, & configurations
  • Specifying resources

Who Should Attend?
Electrical Engineering and Design Professionals, Mission Critical, Critical Power, Data Center Personnel, Chief Electrical Engineers, Designers, Project Managers, or anyone responsible for power quality in your facility or facility designs.
