Voltage fluctuation is a common phenomenon in every part of the country. The industrial units running round the clock, usually face the problem of low and high voltage. 90% of industrial load motors . Electric motors draw considerably high current at low & high voltage. This higher current affects the electrical motors ( particularly smaller capacity motors upto 7.5 H.P.) in three ways:
  • Higher current produces higher losses in electrical motors which causes premature failure winding.
  • These higher losses of electric motors also increase the losses of cables, switches,  transformers and other associated equipments.
  • For smooth continuous operation of motors, overload relays are usually set at 20% higher setting.

Adverse Effects of Single Phasing

  • The line current increases by 1.5 times.
  • If the relay setting is at 15-20% higher than actual operating current then the relay will take 4-6 minutes to trip.
  • The motor ( particularly smaller capacity motors upto 7.5 H.P) cannot withstand this high current for such a long time and in most of the cases it burns out before the relay trips.
  • Heavy short circuit current flows through the relays, contactors, cable etc.
  • Under this condition when the relay, contactor trips, they produce sparks and some times burst.
  • This further damages the switch gear and in some of the cases may cause fire also.
With the installation of the stabilizer and maintaining 390/400 volts, the motor will operate smoothly drawing 15-20% lesser current and correspondingly the relay setting can be reduced by 15-20% In case single phasing occurs, the relay will trip in 40-50 seconds. The motor can withstand the high current fot this period and will be safe. Also, the relays, contactors, switchgears, etc. incorporated with the motor will be safe

If your unit is suffering from low / high / unbalanced voltage, you need to install a stabilizer soon. Industrial units having acute / higher failure rate of Electrical Equipment such as bulbs, tubes, chokes, starter, contactor coils, motors etc., should verify that it may be due to voltage variation (esp. high voltage). You may note down hourly readings of incoming voltage for a few days continuously. If you find that input voltage is lower or higher than 230V (single ph) / 400V (3-ph) even for few hours a day, then you definitely require a stabilizer.

Jindal's AVC's not only stabilize incoming voltage fluctuations, but in the process also help save energy upto 30% and reduce breakdowns upto 80%. We ensures continuity in production and consistency in quality despite incoming voltage variations. Owing to its high efficiency and associated benefits, the pay-back period for the cost of our AVC is typically between 6 to 18 months, depending upon the nature and duration of load and the extent of voltage variation. And more often than not, it is simply avoiding a few minutes machine downtime or just one failure to recover the cost of the equipment.

Jindal’s AVCs are installed either along with the main Distribution Transformer / Panel to ensure stabilized voltage supply to entire plant & machinery / complex, or along with individual machines processes to hold voltage / current / power / temperature / lighting intensity constant. Our AVCs find wide application across all kinds of machines or industries / commercial / residential complexes.
