Power Quality

Richmond Industries has just completed the first year utilizing the Hershey Electrical Power Quality System. This system uses capacitors, variable reactors, and a controller for power factor correction, phase balancing and voltage stability. The power conditioning is performed at the main buss of our transformer and has resulted in Richmond Industries increasing its overall power factor. In addition this system protects us from surge and transient issues, broadband harmonics mitigation, brownout protection and also helps to reduce our Carbon footprint.

We are currently scheduled to perform our annual PAP to insure that our system continues to provide Richmond Industries added protection.
