Energy management

Energy management

For economic and environmental reasons, a rational use of energy is becoming increasingly important. Exercises on manual and automatic compensation of reactive power as well as experiments on reducing peak loads through measurements with active-current and maximum-demand meters demonstrate how the load on an electricity supply network can be reduced and evenly distributed over a 24-hour period. An analysis of the power supply grid and connected consumers (loads) is necessary for effective use of the involved measurement techniques. Accordingly, each experiment permits a detailed investigation of static, dynamic, symmetric and asymmetric loads. Protection of electrical consumers is another important training subject.
