Is Your Facility Suffering From Poor Power Quality?

Poor power quality can reveal itself in many ways. Common signs include:

  • Low power factor causing penalties on electric bills.
  • Reset or lock-up process controls.
  • Faulty or lost data from computer “glitches.”
  • Momentary light flickering.
  • Electrical problems caused by variable speed drives.
  • Overheating of transformers or motors not caused by overload.
  • Frequent printed circuit board failures.
  • Tripped circuit breakers and blown fuses.

Power Quality Analysis

Analysis of modern electrical distribution systems requires as much detective work as it does science. An effective analyst must not only be equipped with an array of specialized instruments, knowledge, and experience, but must also possess a sixth sense in tracking down power quality problems. Comprehensive power quality analysis requires expertise, resources and equipment that few companies possess, even if the electrical maintenance team isn’t too busy fixing the problems to prevent them.

Electrex Industrial Solutions, Metro Detroit’s premier commercial and industrial electrical service company since 1957, provides comprehensive and cost-effective Power Quality Analysis. Customers from small shops to major industrial plants depend on us to analyze, monitor, and maintain their electrical systems and production equipment.

While some elements of an electrical system are common to any facility, the particular combination of systems and equipment in any given facility is unique, exhibiting distinct characteristics and challenges. Our skilled electrical technicians and engineers can work with you to achieve a power quality profile that is optimally suited to your electrical environment. Armed with a knowledge and understanding of your company’s systems, we can help you solve any immediate power quality problem, make recommendations to enhance your power quality, and design an ongoing inspection program to maintain

Power Quality Evaluations for:

  • Equipment Protection
  • Improved Productivity
  • Reduced Maintenance
  • Safety

Power Quality Survey

Before launching into an actual Power Quality Analysis, our professional staff will gather as much information about your electrical systems and industrial equipment as possible. Our engineers and technicians will listen carefully to your concerns and questions, and work closely with you to develop a thorough understanding of your electrical environment.

Power Quality Analysis & Monitoring

Using technically-advanced instrumentation, our power quality analysis and monitoring service personnel will perform a comprehensive Power Quality Analysis of your facility. Our skilled technicians have a vast knowledge of electrical systems acquired from years of experience in a variety of electrical environments. They will devise a strategy to get to the heart of the matter quickly, avoiding false leads and wasted time. Sometimes power disturbances can be elusive, especially to personnel not trained in power quality analysis techniques.

Our service technicians are equipped to tackle the most evasive power disturbance. When warranted, our staff can place sophisticated equipment in strategic locations to monitor electrical supply over time. For most applications, we would monitor events over one seven-day business cycle to construct an accurate electrical current profile during peak and low-demand power usage periods. Our veteran service technicians know how to identify the best location for the placement of monitoring equipment, and are experienced at selecting optimal instrument threshold levels for electrical current analyses. This expertise assures that you will get a true and meaningful analysis of your electrical systems.

Maintenance Service Results and Recommendations

We follow up each service visit with a thorough written report. This vital documentation includes a summary and accurate analysis of our findings, in addition to recommendations for maintenance, repairs and modifications. This documentation is an essential component for justifying equipment upgrades and assuring safety compliance.

Historical Profile & Follow-Up

Electrex Industrial Solutions is a full-service company. Our services range from crisis management to prevention to electrical systems enhancement. In emergencies, we can be at your facility on short notice to get your plant up and running. For the long-term, we can design and implement a custom designed, comprehensive Preventative Maintenance Service Program (PMSP) to keep your facility running smoothly.

Our Power Quality Analysis of your electrical systems and equipment, especially when coupled with our PMSP, will give us a precise picture of the electrical environment of your company. As you partner with us over time, we will develop an accurate historical profile of your electrical infrastructure - system and equipment changes, maintenance history, and trends - arming us with the knowledge required to meet your evolving company needs.
