Customer challenges
with crushers

Crushers in mining are pivotal for breaking down ore, but they frequently lead to power quality issues like voltage fluctuations, harmonics, and poor power factor. This is especially true in remote locations where the electrical infrastructure is less robust. Poor power quality can lead to a host of issues including equipment damage, increased operational expenses, and unplanned outages, all of which adversely impact productivity and profitability.

In the industry, dynamic reactive power compensation and active harmonic filtering are general solutions to these challenges. Dynamic reactive power compensation improves the power factor by dynamically adjusting to the electrical load conditions. This not only enhances energy efficiency but also optimizes the power supply, making it more reliable. On the other hand, active harmonic filtering works to clean up the electrical network by canceling out harmonic distortions. It ensures that sensitive equipment operates optimally and reduces the risk of unexpected breakdowns.

By employing these technologies, mining operations can stabilize voltage, reduce equipment wear, and ultimately lower energy and maintenance costs. These solutions are not only relevant for large-scale operations but also for remote mining facilities that struggle with poor grid stability.
