Frost & Sullivan Commends Schneider Electric's AccuSine+Power Correction System

SANTA CLARA, CA -- Based on its recent analysis of the power correction market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Schneider Electric with the 2016 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. Schneider Electric's new range of AccuSine+ solutions offers flexible designs for ultra-fast and accurate harmonic cancellation, as well as reactive current compensation for power quality management. It emphasizes reliability, availability, scalability, cost, and control during the product development phase, and, along with its suppliers, broadens the market for efficient and sustainable energy.
AccuSine PCS+ is the only harmonic filter in the world to have THD(I) or THD(V) set points. It reduces harmonic current distortion to acceptable levels to improve plant reliability and stability, and, unlike passive filters, cannot be overloaded. It measures harmonic content in the main current and injects a synthesized corrective current to meet local and international standards such as IEEE 519-2014. Additionally, it uses an advanced control algorithm that provides correction beyond the requirements of the standards, ensuring power availability and equipment longevity.Meanwhile, AccuSine PFV+ corrects power quality problems faster than traditional capacitor banks and has infinite correction resolution, resulting in greater precision without voltage spikes. The AccuSine PFV+ product range enables correct leading or lagging power factor without the risk of resonance or harmonic overload, which is common in traditional capacitor banks.Power factor correction and harmonic filtering form an important part of Schneider Electric's product range, coordinated to meet medium- and low-voltage power distribution needs. They improve continuity of service, guarantee scalability, and make monitoring and management more efficient.Another important component of Schneider Electric's portfolio is its reactive energy management systems, which optimize electrical installations and improve power availability by reducing energy consumption. The company boasts a unique and full range of power quality management solutions tested for reliability, safety, quality, efficiency, and productivity.
