Efficient Energy Distribution
Economic savings and reduction of CO2 emissions are achieved with the correct distribution of energy. Green transformers, busbar and UPS solutions ensure a consistent reduction of power consumption. Circuit breakers integrate innovative functions such as metering and communication for monitoring installations.
The European Commission estimates that as much as 2.5 per cent of all energy consumed by the EU is wasted through transformer losses. In line with the directive’s requirements, Legrand Green T.HE transformers ensure a consistent reduction in energy consumption, resulting in financial savings, and a decrease of CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere.
The transformer purchase price is only a small part of its Total Ownership Cost (TCO), while the Operating Costs (mainly connected with losses), represent over 80% of the TCO.
With a transformer designed according to rules environmentally friendly, means reducing the operating cost and, consequently, having both an economic and environmental advantage.
The busbar is the most modern solution for the distribution and transport of electrical energy in 3 different segments, Low, Medium and High of power, it is also particularly suitable in rising main applications within buildings used for the service sector (banks, insurance, airports, commercial headquarters, skyscrapers, hospitals, data centers).
Power Factor Correction
An electrical installation, with alternating current, comprising receivers such as transformers, motors, or any other receivers whose intensity is out of phase with the voltage, consumes reactive energy.
By supplying reactive power on demand, capacitor banks enable the subscriber to:
- Increased power available at distribution transformers.
- Optimization of the contract of electrical subscriptions.
- The limitation of the energy losses in cables by Joule effect.
- Avoidance of penalties applied by the energy provider (or benefit from bonuses applied in some countries).
This tool allows you to estimate the potential gains associated with the installation of a capacitor bank suitable for your installation with or without anti-harmonic choke, based on the electrical characteristics of your installation, the initial power factor and the targeted power factor.
The UPS granular architecture simplifies all phases including assembly, maintenance and future expansion. This innovative design allows maximum continuity of service to obtained, especially for critical applications where redundancy is a must.
Continuous research combined with modern production methods has enabled Legrand to offer the market a cutting-edge,top-performing product: certified efficiency up to 96% and unity power factor.
Combining high density with a structural design that optimises the space, the range some models system is the ideal solution for advanced energy management and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
