Reduced flicker and added compensation capacity
A steel mill in Thailand was planning to expand their capacity by upgrading the electric arc furnace (EAF) and secure operations of their ageing SVC system. There was also a need to decrease flicker and keep voltage unbalance beneath limits set by the utility. Merus Power offered modernization services to the client, and the initial step was a site visit where detailed power quality measurements were carried out and client’s future performance requirements were understood.
Equipment delivery was made on time and installation and commissioning was carried out and completed within planned time frame. After installation and commissioning of the solution, the total furnace power was significantly increased, and flicker reduction was over 25%.
