Customer challenges
in the automotive industry

The automotive industry is a massively competitive business, where speed and quality matter the most. Automotive plants require to be on 24 hours every day in order for car manufacturers to be successful and stay in the game. Increasing customer demands and the electrification of transport are pushing the industry into even higher availability and flexibility.

Car manufacturing processes are of critical nature and require high process continuity and high-quality power at all times. Any interruption of such critical processes will result in significant financial losses in the form of lost raw materials, lower product quality, expensive maintenance, and an adverse reputational impact on the supplier. Process interruptions may be induced by non-linear loads, such as Variable Frequency Drives (VFD). Power outages or voltage sags may interrupt the whole manufacturing process. High harmonic current generated by non-linear loads in the plant may cause nuisance tripping or burn electronic cards. Protection against such interruptions is vital for profitable businesses in critical process industries.
