Power Supply for Industrial Enterprises

Uninterrupted power supply is crucial for industrial establishments where the very operations depend on the power driven machines working day and night. All industries – automotive, IT, house hold goods, paper, plastic, food processing and more, need power for their different units through an efficient distribution system.

Electrical generator is the device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy, generally through electro magnetic induction. The mechanical energy may be derived from a reciprocating or turbine steam engine, water falling at a great speed, an internal combustion engine or a wind turbine.

The transmission line is the material medium that forms the path for the directing the electrical energy. Components of transmission lines can be wires, coaxial cables, di- electric slabs, optical fibres, electric power lines, and wave guides.

The performance of transmission line depends on parameters such as series resistance and inductance, shunt capacitance, and conductance. These parameters are distributes over the length of transmission line. If the insulation of the line is not good, leakage currents can flow over the surface of insulators especially during thunderstorm.

The total power requirement in industrial facilities is very huge. However, it must be supplied at the right voltage to avoid any harm to different machines and equipment operating in the premises. Fluctuating current voltage can also be a major safety hazard for the employees working in the industrial facility.

Electrical transformers are used to change or ‘transform’ voltages, generally from a higher to a lower level. This is done by applying the principle of magnetic induction between coils to transform the voltage and current levels. Basically, electrical transformers are passive devices to transform alternating current electric energy from one circuit to another through electromagnetic induction.

It comprises a ferromagnetic core and two or more coils, known as windings. A changing current is the primary winding creates an alternating magnetic field in the core. With this action, an alternating voltage is induced in each of the secondary coils.

To further protect the electrical power systems in industrial enterprises from over loads and short circuits, installation of good quality circuit breakers and fuses is imperative. The circuit breakers are devised to be activated automatically in the event of a short circuit or any condition that produces a sudden current. By breaking the circuit, they interrupt this flow of current, preventing any damage to the appliances and electric shock to workers.

During any new installation, energy efficient devices must be selected for industrial concerns, wherever possible. The power requirements being huge can add up to the total costs of operations if conscious efforts for power savings are not made. Fluorescent bulbs for lighting and thermostat controlled air conditioning should be considered while planning for electrical installation.
