Westinghouse Power Quality Case Study
28 May 2021
Westinghouse Springfields Fuels reduced business risk, of potential failure of electrical equipment, by tackling their harmonics issues.
A Westinghouse company, Springfields Fuels Ltd undertakes a range of activities associated with fuel manufacturing for nuclear plants, including oxide fuels and Uranium Hexafluoride. Challenge Failures of rectifier converter transformers were causing concerns and having an
adverse impact on the network reliability at the Westinghouse Springfield site.
EA Technology was appointed to:
- Undertake a power quality examination of a suspect transformer and to investigate the LV harmonic currents to determine their magnitudes and associated effects.
- Report on conclusions and recommendations to enhance network reliability and avoid future damage to electrical assets.
