Following close work with our German partner A.Eberle, we are about to take delivery of our first pole-mount LVRSys product in Australia. This work has adapted A.Eberle’s successful ground-mounted low-voltage regulator to a pole-mounted version with the focus on this region's pole and conductor mounting practices, the extreme temperature range and the need to keep insects out of the electronics!
A 50 kVA single phase unit will soon be installed and evaluated by a southern Australian utility.
LVRsys is a low-voltage regulation system that provides a cost-effective alternative to re-conductoring or installing additional line capacity to deal with voltage issues. It can be used within all (230/400 V) low-voltage distribution networks where voltage problems exist
LVRsys products are available with single phase ratings of 7.5 kVA to 50 kVA and three phase ratings of 22 kVA to 630 kVA. Units are available in a variety of pad-mount, pole-mount or suitable for installation in kiosks. Pole mount units are available in single phase ratings from 7.5 to 50 kVA and three phase ratings of 22 to 70 kVA.
With the proliferation of domestic solar generation and electric vehicle charging, there is a growing need for additional voltage regulation within the LV distribution network. The manual changing of distribution transformer taps cannot adequately control network voltage as customer connections swing from daytime producers of energy to night-time consumers.
The LVRSys product gives network planners a convenient solution that can be retrofitted within the distribution network to automatically regulate under or over-voltage conditions often found at the edges of the distribution network. With the independent phase regulation of three phase systems, balancing of the three-phase voltages is possible, improving the overall power quality of the network. LVRSys is available in a variety of sizes and enclosures for use as an in-line regulator for a small number of consumers or at LV substations for entire feeder regulation.
