The demand fee is the highest portion of your power bill (sometimes as much as 70%), and is typically based on the highest 15 minute demand in the monthly billing cycle. A customer using 3500 KW on the first day of the month will pay that amount even if the mill is down the remaining 29 days. The goal of the Quad Plus solution is to clip those peaks and save you money.
Save your operation thousands of dollars a year on power bills! At the same time, this Quad Plus signature software allows you to define demand charge parameters based on production needs. The bottom line: more efficient energy use and a consistent utility bill.
If the RED line (Actual KW Average) exceeds the GREEN line (forecasted KW usage) current limitation will begin. Once the GREEN line exceeds RED line current limits will return to setpoint 900 Seconds = 1 Period. A display on the HMI operation screen provides a quick visual indicator of Actual KW (Red) versus forecasted KW (Green). Current limitation begins if/when Red exceeds Green. Once the GREEN line exceeds RED line current limits will return to setpoint.
