Airports and Other Commercial Facilities

Customer challenges

Airports are among the most demanding applications in terms of operational reliability and availability. The electrical system of an airport consists of different sub-systems, each designed to ensure smooth flow or passengers, planes and luggage. Any interruption in one of more of these sub-electrical systems affects the service quality and passenger comfort. In the presence of harmonic distortions produced by non-linear loads, operational reliability and availability cannot be guaranteed.



  • Air traffic control stations
  • Lighting (landing, guidance, terminal, etc.)
  • Emergency loads
  • Chillers and pumps fed with VFDs
  • Conveyers, lifts and escalators with Variable Speed Drives (VSDs)
  • Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS)
  • Other non-linear loads in the network
  • Shopping centers
  • Amusement parks

Customer benefits

The key benefits of improving power quality at airports and other commercial buildings are:

  • Reliable operation of critical airport processes
  • Higher service quality and low operational costs
  • Energy savings
  • Extended lifetime of electrical equipment
