Customer challenges
in the pharmaceutical industry

The pharmaceutical industry develops and manufactures different kinds of pharmaceutical drugs to use as medications and help patients with various medical needs. The production of pharmaceuticals uses a large amount of automated machinery, microprocessors, and other sensitive electrical devices. Using such equipment generally means an increased amount of non-linear loads in the system, such as Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs).

Critical and sensitive manufacturing processes require high process continuity. Any interruption to them will result in significant financial losses in the form of lost raw materials, lower product quality, expensive maintenance costs, and an adverse reputational impact on the supplier. Process interruptions may be induced by the supply grid or by non-linear loads. High harmonic currents generated by VFDs in the plant may cause nuisance tripping or burn electronic cards. Power outages or voltage sags cause unnecessary downtime and significantly lower the lifecycle of sensitive equipment.

The pharmaceutical industry faces serious power quality challenges as a rapidly growing sector. Protection against such interruptions is vital for profitable businesses in critical process industries.
