  • IGBT Explained
    IGBT's (insulated-gate bipolar transistors) are used in modern Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) combining high efficiency with fast switching whilst keeping the frequency output without narrow tolerances. Stable seamless electrical power supply. IGBT provide extremely low voltage distortion and improves the power efficiency especially when supporting...
  • Peak Lopping Explained
    Peak load lopping also known as ‘peak load shaving’ & ‘load sharing’, is the used when the GRID supply can’t be increased due to cost or location and you need more power than is available. When the more power is required and the GRID can’t...
  • Generator Frequency Fluctuation
    Generator frequency fluctuation can occur when the generator is under load. The diesel engine can he heard to be struggling or hunting randomly. If this audible fluctuation continues you may find that on the control panel you can see the frequency drop and rise erratically....
  • Data Centre Cooling Air Conditioning Installation
    Traditionally, there are two ways of cooling a data center: air-based cooling and liquid-based cooling. Air-Based The first and most common, method within the realm of air-based cooling is what’s called ‘cold aisle/hot aisle.’ The idea is to separate the cold air from the hot...
  • Data Centre Fire Suppression Installation Upgrade
    Facility managers have a range of factors to consider when it comes to data center fire suppression systems. The primary fire protection systems used within data centers typically include: wet pipe sprinklers, pre-action sprinklers, and special suppression (i.e., clean agent, inert gas, or mist)  Facility managers have a range of factors to consider when it...
  • Generator AVR – What is the AVR?
    The Generator AVR is a small electronic device that sits on the alternator monitoring the power output. You may never even notice it. This small electronic device automatically maintains the generator electrical output terminal voltage within pre-set manufacturers parameters. The Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) is...
  • Generator Hunting and Surging
    Generator hunting and surging randomly or erratically. This can occur when the generator is under load and has been running perfectly normally then suddenly your generator struggles. You’ll first become aware of this , because you’ll hear the engine struggling or hunting randomly. Check the...
