The Hershey Program
Free Offer Package - This free estimate will provide you with the approximate cost of a power quality and conditioning system and the potential energy savings to be achieved by the system. Included as a part of this estimate is an explanation of our power quality audit services and a quote to perform these services on the electrical networks in your facility.
Power Quality Auditing - Learn about our power quality auditing services that
test and measure the electrical characteristics of each main transformer load center within your facility.
System Proposal - The result of our power quality audit service is a complete engineering
report and proposal that will provide you with a profile of each electrical network in your facility, and will identify areas of inefficiency and any electrical power quality problems that were discovered at the time of measurement.
System Design & Installation (Link Anlaysis) - During this phase of our program
our technicians will make arrangements to visit your site and take final measurements for the design of the proposed power quality and conditioning system.
Energy Savings Anlayses - Our energy efficiency program offers a complete
utility bill and energy savings analysis service.
Performance Assurance Plan - Our performance assurance plan offers customers
a routine maintenance plan for the installed power quality equipment in order to protect their investment.
Voltage Irregularities - A discussion of over and under voltages, short term voltage fluctuations, voltage imbalance, intermittent supply failures and how Hershey Energy Systems can help you solve these power quality problems.
Imbalanced Currents - A discussion about imbalanced currents on a 3-phase distribution system and the solution provided by the Hershey power quality and conditioning system.
Harmonics - Learn more about harmonics including triplen harmonics, negative sequence harmonics (5th and 11th), variable frequency drives, and the Hershey solution to harmonic problems in an industrial facility.
Power Factor - The definition of power factor and a discussion about power factor and inductive loads, and the problems caused by poor power factor. The Hershey power quality and conditioning system corrects power factor to near unity.
Overloaded Transformers - A brief list of the causes for overloaded transformers and a description of how Hershey Energy can increase the capacity on your transformers.
Lightning - Lightning as a power quality issue and the protection from voltage surges and intermittent supply failures that the Hershey power quality and conditioning system offers.
Brownouts - A brief list of the problems associated with electrical brownouts in a distribution system and the optional protection provided by the Hershey system.
Electrical Phase Losses - A brief list of the effects of the loss of a phase and a description of how Hershey Energy can minimize those effects.
