LOAD SHEDDING/PEAK SHAVING
Load-shedding schemes can be implemented to control peak demand levels or to ensure service continuity to critical loads. Circuit breakers sequencing can be used to close and/or open circuit breakers in accordance with user specified sequences and/or applications. These systems can be used for:
- Powering large motors across several billing KW demand periods to avoid demand penalties.
- Circuit Breakers can be selectively opened as needed according to user defined priorities, based on monitored power demand values.
- Frequency based control
- Load reduction to match generator supply
- Demand control
- Peak shaving
