Reactors or Inductors
Trafo Power Solutions supplies dry-type reactors – or inductors – which are vital components that link a building’s power supply with the utility power and the backup generator. These specialised units have become more important as generators are being increasingly used due to electricity supply interruptions.
Reactors help customers reduce electricity costs while raising system efficiency and stability. They prevent reactive power from generators being used from the power grid, reducing the tariff that an energy user pays to a power utility.
They also serve as voltage regulators and filters on the utility power being supplied, allowing a more stable power supply to the building. This delivers a further benefit as, in the event of a fault the reactor can help to limit the fault current, making it less likely that costly utility equipment will be damaged.
