The average supply voltage in the UK is 242V. Because of that electricity supplied to many sites across the UK is higher than necessary and responsible for energy losses in voltage dependant equipment. Electrical Review spoke to Wilson Power Solutions.
Voltage management is an energy saving technique addressing this issue by modifying supply voltage to a site in order to reduce losses in voltage dependent equipment. There are a number of dedicated voltage management solution providers in the UK. But it’s an increasingly well know “secret” that for sites with MV supply, a simple, straight forward and cost effective solution exists that doesn’t require any dedicated voltage management equipment: Managing site supply voltage at source via MV/LV supply transformer(s).
