Wat is spanningsoptimalisatie?

Spanningsoptimalisatie is een techniek die de binnenkomende stroom filtert en aanpast aan de spanning die de apparatuur optimaal laat functioneren. Spanningsoptimalisatie is met name interessant wanneer er een hoge spanning binnenkomt. Veelal resulteert dit in een hoog verbruik, onnodige slijtage en een hoge energierekening.

Spanningsoptimalisatie mag niet verward worden met spaartransformatoren of ‘spanningsconstanthouders’, omdat deze maar een fractie van de besparingen bieden zoals echte spanningsoptimalisatie dat doet.

Het unicum zit in het gepatenteerde systeem, dat gebruik maakt van tegenspanning, ofwel tegen-ElektroMotorischeKracht (Kortweg tegen-EMK), dat ervoor zorgt dat het teveel aan spanning teruggestuurd wordt naar het net als echte stroom (in kW/h).

Het patent

Het patent in Powerstar en VO4 is gebaseerd op de derde winding in het systeem. Deze derde winding zet overspanning middels tegen-Elektromotorische kracht om in echte stroom (kW/h), die teruggestuurd wordt naar het net. Deze werking is verantwoordelijk voor ongeveer 70% van de besparing. Doordat het systeem in serie staat met de hoofdaansluiting, kunnen we het geen transformator noemen.

Dit principe is een bijverschijnsel van elektromotoren, waarbij hetzelfde magnetische veld dat gebruikt wordt om de beweging te genereren, ook stroom opwekt. In feite zou het systeem daarom ook geen transformator moeten heten, maar een wisselstroom-lijn-omvormer. Het systeem gebruikt de binnenkomende overspanning om stroom op te wekken, welke wordt teruggestuurd naar het net.

In een standaard spanningsoptimalisatie systeem, wat in feite een spaartransformator is, is de verhouding tussen het aantal windingen op de eerste spoel en het aantal windingen op de tweede spoel leidend voor de spanningsreductie. Dit kan zorgen voor een verbetering van de efficiëntie van apparatuur.
