Power system resilience or resiliency is a key concept for reliability during natural disasters and man made problems on electrical systems. Key concepts: Ability to withstand, recover, adapt and prepare, and Eaton engineering services solutions.
A var, kvar, reactive or imaginary power is probably the most misunderstood electrical concept. Many explanations like the beer analogy have been used to explain the unexplainable. At Eaton's PSEC, you can learn about kvar and capacitors and PF.
Energy resiliency has become increasingly important; the use of microgrids helps achieve this goal while also using energy storage helps provide electrical energy savings and independence from the local utility.
Watch this video to learn how to get the most out of your utility bill from Eaton's power factor correction (PFC) capacitors.
The Tacoma Narrows Bridge was classic mechanical resonance. This video explains a similar problem with electrical systems when capacitors are applied with harmonic loads. At PSEC, we have a great demo to show series and parallel harmonic resonance.
Batteries have been around for more than 100 years but energy storage is evolving. Learn about lithium ion, lead acid and new technologies like supercapacitors, microgrids, Tesla Powerwall and demos you can see at Eaton's PSEC.
The Eaton Power Systems Experience Center (PSEC) gives a tutorial about the symptoms, sources and solutions for power quality (PQ) problems including 6 case study examples for sags, surge, grounding, transients and harmonics.
See how supercapacitors are changing the game for energy storage as we make a comparison with today's traditional lead acid and lithium ion batteries for use in applications like data center UPS's at Eaton's Power Systems Experience Center (PSEC).
The Eaton Power Systems Experience Center (PSEC) gives an educational overview on harmonics that covers IEEE 519, VFDs, VSDs and power quality issues that affect your electrical system.
The Eaton Power Systems Experience Center (PSEC) discusses all topics surrounding surge protection! Learn about UL 1449, transients, impulses, TVSS, surge protection devices, lightning arresters, high frequency and metal oxide varistor.
