                                                    Take advantage of discount MV utility rates without the risk of counterparty power cuts


                                                    Main Drivers

                                                    “To guarantee the lowest possible utility rates, I have agreed to go off the power grid during peak hours. Therefore, to avoid costly downtime, I need a back-up power supply that kicks in automatically after just a few seconds.”

                                                    Solution in brief

                                                    Install an Automatic Transfer System (ATS) to switch the MV connection to a back-up generator

                                                    Solution applicable to any building with a medium voltage network

                                                    Save energy

                                                    Depending on your rate agreement, the utility sends out a signal just before the higher peak rate kicks in or power is cut off.

                                                    The ATS receives this signal and:

                                                    • Starts the generator
                                                    • Turns on the main switch once the generator is ready
                                                    • Turns off the generator switch

                                                    Power is restored in less than 10 seconds


                                                    Increase power availability


                                                    ATS ensures power availability, performing the same functions if voltage loss is detected on the main electrical line, with power generally restored in less than 15 seconds.

                                                    •  The fault passage indicator (FPI) ensures the ATS is locked if a fault current is detected to avoid cutting off power to a properly-functioning line.
