The PowerKureTM Solution

PowerKureTM consists of LRC tank circuits and zigzag reactors allowing it to capture and recycle losses across all three phases. PowerKureTM is not a traditional capacitor bank nor is it an SCR or choke of any kind. We are designed in parallel as the lowest point of z% (impedance).

Balance Voltage Across All Three Phases: PowerKureTM can stabilize voltage across all three phases using a combination of LRC tank circuits and phase shifting reactors. Balancing voltage across all three phases reduces heat and electrical losses. NEMA has a 5% limit on imbalanced phase voltages but even a 3% voltage imbalance will generate 18% more heat and heat will generate electrical losses.

Decrease Fluctuations: PowerKureTM can improve voltage within each phase, minimize fluctuations and allow motors to run more efficiently. Additionally, PowerKureTM has the ability to raise voltage by using LRC tank circuits and zigzag reactors to capture and recycle losses as needed.

Balance Current Across All Three Phases: PowerKureTM balances the load over the three phases and mitigates phase currents, thus reducing negative sequences and circulating currents. It uses reactive passive components to help reduce three phase imbalances. Current balancing can often reduce utility bills with reductions in KW, KVA, KVAR and KWH.

Improve Power Factor: PowerKureTM can optimize the power factor between .95 and .99 without capacitor banks and their associated side effects. PowerKureTM will monitor the power factor and add capacitance, as needed, to maintain it at a predefined level.

Mitigate Broadband Harmonics and Recycle Losses: PowerKureTM mitigates broadband harmonics or electrical frequencies above 60Hz, by first tuning and then detuning the harmonic. It uses multiple filters to capture the harmonics and then recycle the losses through the tank circuit. If harmonics are found to be extremely high, additional components will be used to reduce distortion at the targeted spectrum. This reduces electrical losses and improves equipment longevity and performance.

Mitigate Surges, Transients and Impulses: PowerKureTM captures surges and transients, and then recycles the losses through the tank circuit. Impulses are clipped and sent to ground reducing the chance of equipment damage.

Brownout Protection: PowerKureTM maintains and increases voltage during temporary brownouts, reducing equipment shutdowns. This is an optional feature that can be incorporated into the PowerKureTM system.

Brownout Protection: PowerKureTM supplies continuous voltage during intermittent supply failure of short durations, generally 1 second or less. This is an optional feature that can be incorporated into the PowerKureTM system.
