Customer challenges
in hotels and other lodging facilities

Modern consumers expect 100% reliability of operations and an all-in-all quality experience when using amenities, especially on vacation. Even a minor inconvenience or disruption of services can generate a bad review or prompt people to demand a full refund compensation.

It is important to improve power quality and energy efficiency to avoid bad reputation, financial losses, and dangerous situations. In hotels and other lodging facilities, various power quality problems can arise due to the amount of different electrical equipment used daily to convenience the lives of the accommodated.

Current harmonics, voltage imbalances, and low power factor all impact the operation of critical hotel processes and can potentially lead to life-threatening situations. Many countries have power quality standards to comply with and impose penalties on players whose systems pollute the grid.

Processes fed by Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) such as HVAC systems, elevators, escalators, computers, lighting, printers, modern hotel kitchen equipment, TV screens, fire protection system, CCTV, laundry applications, etc.
