  6. 6. 66 Reliable and comprehensive electronic VAR injection
  7. 7. 77 This is what electronic VAR control is all about. Make the most of your energy SM
  8. 8. 8Confidential Property of Schneider Electric 30% 10% 18% The case for change Many people believe optimizing power distribution systems and achieving ideal power factor is complex and costly. However, we propose solutions that maximize the savings when balanced with the cost of the solution to obtain a reasonable Return On Investment (ROI). Schneider Electric™ benefits - Savings: electrical system designed for your true need - Increased quality: better process realization - Performance: continuous support where loads cause flicker - Support: pre- and post-sales tools and services – all available online - Green power: maintain reactive current balance for renewable energy farms - Integration in smart grids: control and monitoring via intelligence Capital expense reduction Utility penalty reduction Power system improvement
  9. 9. 9Confidential Property of Schneider Electric Beyond efficiency – AccuSine PFV+ AccuSine™ PFV+ is a very simple and effective means to eliminate leading or lagging power factor, reduce voltage fluctuations, enhance equipment operating life, and improve system power capacity. Reduced CAPEX expenditures Reduced OPEX expenses Improved business performance Improved electricity availability Extended equipment life Ease of service

  13. 13. 13Confidential Property of Schneider Electric 13 Elevating our game Electronic VAR control for very precise displacement power factor correction and mains current balancing Displacement PF correction stops utility charges for poor PF (instant savings where penalty is charged). Mains current balancing prevents unwanted/unplanned stoppages – maximize uptime and production scheduling. Parallel connection allows for expansion, retrofit, and no interruption to loads AccuSine PFV+ is installed parallel to the loads, therefore initial install or additional units may be completed while the loads are not interrupted – keeps plant operating during installs. Touch-screen interface with communication Easy-to-use touch screen on HMI – simple and intuitive to use. Communications via RS485/RJ45 connector is provided on HMI. Easy remote monitoring and operational control (Ethernet TCP/IP).
