The legacy design of UPS power-backup systems cost the average data center more than $130,000 in unnecessary utility charges annually. This white paper examines the risks of the legacy configuration and recommends consideration of an alternate system design that includes a modern electronic voltage regulator (EVR) as a standard component.

Comparison of Automatic Voltage Regulators for Utility versus Power Quality Applications

When it comes to voltage regulation for large industrial or commercial applications, confusion often surrounds two different types of automatic voltage regulators (AVR): the medium-voltage mechanical AVR and the low-voltage mechanical or electronic AVR. Spurring the befuddlement is the fact that both of these distinct technologies are called voltage regulators. Customers don’t always understand the distinct purposes for the two technologies. The medium-voltage mechanical AVR is geared to compensate for voltage drops in the electric utility’s distribution network. Low-voltage AVRs, however, are designed to protect an end user’s equipment from power quality problems, particularly voltage levels that are too high or too low.

Comparison of Automatic Voltage Regulators for Industrial Power Quality Applications

Numerous voltage regulator technologies have the capability to correct voltage problems. However, most voltage regulators are designed for use in data centers or light commercial application where the load and environmental conditions are fairly benign. When computer-grade voltage regulators are used in industrial situations, there are often a number of operational limitations and other considerations that have to be addressed. Industrial-grade voltage regulators, on the other hand, are specifically designed for the special challenges and requirements found in manufacturing applications or where the loads demands are severe.
