Beneficial to both energy consumers and utilities alike, net metering has become an important incentive to encourage investment in solar energy systems. … Read More
No matter the type of industry or business, it’s normal for energy usage to fluctuate throughout the day. Building occupancy, equipment usage, and even the time of year can all contribute to the demand for energy. … Read More
When thinking about submetering, images of large, industrial complexes or manufacturing facilities may come to mind. While it’s true that these places can benefit greatly from a comprehensive submetering program, the small or midsized office spaces … Read More
Although industrial electricity customers may be mostly concerned with the amount of energy they are consuming, there’s a secondary issue that also requires attention: power quality. In simple terms, power quality is the measure of how well the voltage, … Read More
Named after German physicist Walter Rogowski, a Rogowski coil is a flexible current transformer that is used to measure alternating current (AC) in a variety of power monitoring applications. Like other types of current transformers, a Rogowski coil is … Read More
Direct current (DC) and Alternating current (AC) are common, elemental terms when learning about electrical systems or electronics, but what exactly do they mean? And which one is better?
Both DC and AC describe the flow of charged particles … Read More
