E-Power Technologies will assist your Company to implement Energy Efficient Technologies. We employ a dynamic team of professional engineers & Technicians, who specialize in all fields of Engineering and have well equipped offices in Mossel Bay, Cape Town and Jeffrey's Bay. We approach all projects with the aim to ensure the lowest cost for the client, but ensuring the highest possible quality.

Solar Applications

Solar solutions that integrate into a residential electrical system and seamlessly converts power from battery reserves when utility grid power is unavailable. Conext XW+ or Conext SW integrates into the residential electrical system and seamlessly converts power from battery reserves to power critical loads such as pumps, security systems, refrigerators and electronics, when utility grid power is unavailable. For extended power outages, Conext XW+ or Conext SW integrates with a generator to support critical loads while replenishing battery reserves.

Factor Correction

Minimize wasted energy, improve generator or plant efficiency and liberate more kW from the available supply making you more cost efficient. Power factor is the ratio between the kW and the kVA drawn by an electrical load where the kW is the actual load power and the kVA is the apparent load power. It is a measure of how effectively the current is being converted into useful work output and more particularly is a good indicator of the effect of the load current on the efficiency of the supply system.

By installing suitably sized switched capacitors into the power distribution circuit, the Power Factor is improved and the value becomes nearer to 1 or 0.98 thus minimizing wasted energy, improving the efficiency of a plant, liberating more kW from the available supply and saving you money! Once in place, the cost of PFC can usually be recovered in less than 1 year.

Maintenance and Installation

E-Power repairs existing PFC panels and also supply and install new custom units. To maximize the lifespan of the PFC panel it is of utmost importance that the panel is correctly installed and maintained. Due to the nature of the design of the dielectric, the capacitor is sensitive to overheating and transients and is therefore important to keep track of the condition of the capacitors, either to measure the current or the capacitance of the phases and to keep records of these measurements. In case of a new installation or modifications to an existing installation, it is important to check that capacitors and transformer can not go into resonance if there are harmonics in the system.

E-Power can repair your existing PFC panel or supply and install a new unit to suit your requirements. It is also recommended to have your PFC installation serviced on a regular basis to prevent excessive damage to the PFC panel in case of any type of failure.

Power Analysis and Quality

A full diagnosis of your electrical installation or network with precise measurement, calculation and display of harmonics. Three-Phase Electrical Networks Analyzer – C.A 8335 QUALI~STAR + : E-Power Technologies makes use of the Qualistar to measure all the necessary voltage, current and power parameters for a full diagnosis of your electrical installation or network. We can measure from 10 V to 1000 V and with VT and CT configurations from 1kV to 400 kV. Measurement, calculation and display of harmonics up to the 50th order – complete with Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).
