Managing a Weak Power Supply
As the stability of local and regional grids comes under increasing pressure, the impact of weak power supplies is hitting some businesses hard. Issues are often caused by short power outages or blackouts – particularly in smaller grid sectors or under island conditions.
In many industrial scenarios, these power fluctuations can halt processes and production. This can have significant effects, including:
- capital loss, the loss of materials that might be rendered unusable when power supplies drop during a process, or;
- production loss (sometimes referred to as “dead weight loss”), which is the output lost because processes are interrupted or delayed.
