Voltage stabilizers are an essential and mandatory part of any office, commercial or industrial use. During the 1990s, manual stabilizers were widely used but today, with the evolution of electronic circuitry, servo stabilizers are used for industrial purpose.
A servo stabilizer is an integral part of any facility that uses electrical appliances and machinery. But what does a stabilizer do? A servo voltage stabilizer is a servo-controlled stabilization system or device used to provide a constant voltage for equipment. With servo stabilizers in place, expensive machines are protected from any voltage fluctuations. The function of a stabilizer is to maintain optimum and steady voltage supply and also help to save on excess electricity usage.
Servo based voltage stabilizers are used for appliances/ equipment which are very sensitive and need accurate input power supply (±01%) for performing intended functions.
There are seven main stabilizer parts or components:
7. Electronic Circuit: connects all the components of the servo voltage stabilizer so that the signal passes in the correct way for effective working of the stabilizer.
No doubt you want to know, how does a stabilizer work? When the servo voltage stabilizer receives an input current with fluctuating voltage, the microprocessors in the electronic circuitry triggers the Servo motor driver. This in turn activates the servo motor, which moves across the windings of the auto-transformer. As the servomotor’s shaft is connected to the primary of the Buck Boost transformer, the movement automatically adjusts and increases or reduces the voltage value to the prescribed limit almost instantly. This adjustment of input voltage to the correct output voltage is the aim of the servo motor and the purpose of a servo stabilizer.
This controlled voltage is relayed through the secondary of Buck Boost transformer, and then fed to the appliance or machinery in use.
Servo voltage stabilizer is the only electric stabilizer that can be used across single-phase and three-phase connections.
There are two types of servo stabilizers in the market: air-cooled and oil-cooled. While both work on the same principle, the oil-cooled stabilizer has a higher sustained overload capacity.
Servo voltage stabilizers can be single-phase or three-phase balanced types or three-phase unbalanced types.
Oil-cooled stabilizers are suitable for engineering & machine tools, CNC machines, elevators, plastic machines. Applications of air-cooled stabilizers include medical equipment, textile machines, telecom & data centres, printing machines, machines with sensitive microprocessors.
Electrical equipment like the X-Ray machines, PH-meter, etc. gets affected when there is a high voltage whereas compressors, refrigerators, etc. get damaged due to low voltage. Also, industrial equipment, analytical instruments, simple household electric machines, elevators, etc. get damaged (partially or completely) due to the high or low voltage supply. Electricity boards are also unable to provide clean power as the load is enormous and the number of electrical appliances running is too high.
Servo stabilizers help to control and avoid such problems, and offer several benefits:
