A UST CASE STUDY SERIES
Perspectives on “all facility” voltage management from the engineering team at UST
Voltage sags and other power quality issues are among the most costly threats to manufacturing, productivity and security.
No grid in the world is immune.
Depending on the threat, solutions can range from simply accepting risk, to spot protection for vulnerable equipment and processes, to modular or single-unit solutions installed to protect entire facilities and complexes.
For voltage-critical facilities located in regions of the world where the grid is unstable, and for manufacturing facilities anywhere in the world that depend on near-perfect voltage (e.g. semiconductor, pharmaceutical), single-unit solutions offer distinct advantages.
In this 5-part case-based series, UST engineers explore the challenges and opportunities of designing and installing voltage management units in 1MVA to 3.5MVA environments.
