ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Energy Efficiency (EE) has been termed as The First Fuel by the International Energy Agency (IEA), based on the premise that a unit of energy saved is a unit of energy gained (or generated). In fact, the IEA places so much significance on EE that in its Efficient World Scenario (EWS), it ranks EE initiatives higher than Renewable Energy as a contributor to meeting global targets. Some of the key features of EE initiatives when compared to other forms of sustainable energy initiatives is that: 

  • Everyone has access to it 

  • It is not affected by cyclical nature of RE resource

  • It is not dependent on space availability

  • The Emergence of IOT makes tracking efficiency easier 

  • Generally characterized by lower investment and faster payback

IGT, along with our technical partners - SAS Powertech Pvt. Ltd. - from India, provides a range of EE services and has developed a structured approach to analyse and understand your energy use patterns, the impact of rising costs and quantifiable steps that you can take to mitigate the effect of rising utility and water prices.

  • Can be offered with attractive payback.

 

Harmonic Analysis

 

Monitor the percentage of Harmonic distortion in the Electrical supply. To check the effects of Harmonic distortion in current as well as voltage on the power in the distribution network as well as identify any kind of failures caused due to higher Harmonic distortion. Verify compliance to set as per IEEE standards or acceptance levels as per industry norms.

 

Benefits:

  • Determine the extent of Harmonic distortion in voltage & current.

  • Identify the effects of distortion.

  • Calculate power losses caused due to higher percentage of Harmonics.

 

Active & Passive Harmonic Filters

Active Filters - Advanced IGBT based Harmonic Filter designed for Industries having high percentage of Non Linear loads / frequently switching loads. These filters are DSP controlled and provide immediate correction and are independent of load ratings.

 

Benefits:

  • Provides instantaneous Harmonics mitigation.

  • Sub-cycle correction helps arrest damages/ losses caused.

  • Designed to mitigate specific harmonic frequencies as well as complete band of Harmonics.

  • Can be used for complete/ partial power factor correction while mitigating harmonics.

  • User friendly & programmable for changing mitigation requirements

Passive Filters - These are filters designed to mitigate harmonic distortion within the power supply. They are a combination of capacitors and reactors designed as per the predominant harmonic present in the supply as well as the Harmonic generating load. The Filter capacity and location of installation is derived after the Harmonic / Power Quality analysis.

 

Benefits:

  • Mitigate Harmonics of specific order in a facility.

  • Enhances power quality which reduces down time of the facility as well as equipment life.

  • Various switching options available as per load requirement.

  • Low capital as well as operational cost.

 

IR Thermography
 

Study all points of connection in a distribution network including breakers, busbars & Identify the points of heating in the electrical distribution system. To grade the type of heating and identify the reasons.

 

Benefits:

  • Can identify hazard points in the Electrical distribution network and define remedial solutions to avoid any electrical incident.

 

Electrical Safety Audit

 

To study the Electrical infrastructure of a facility and certify its worthiness for the current requirements. Physically check the Electrical panel rooms for any hazard or improper storage of goods. Identify points of heating and insulation loss. Check breaker capacities in comparison to the currents recorded. Check earthing system currents against benchmarks.
