Customer challenges
in the chemical industry

Chemical industry facilities have to meet strict and demanding grid codes and regulations as well as other technical requirements. Some manufacturing processes are of mission-critical nature and require uninterrupted power supply that ensures high process continuity. Even the slightest interruptions or disruptions of such processes will result in significant financial losses in the form of lost raw materials, lower product quality, and expensive maintenance of damaged sensitive high-technology process equipment. In a worst-case scenario, human life can be endangered because of sub-par power. Providing maximum safety in a highly dangerous environment should be essential.

Critical process interruptions may be induced by the supply grid or by non-linear loads like Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) in the manufacturing facility. High harmonic currents generated by non-linear loads in the plant may cause nuisance tripping or burn electronic cards.

Improved power quality and energy efficiency contribute to success and ensure a front seat in demanding global markets.

Applications like compressors and pumps fed by Variable Frequency Drives, etc.
