TCEC – How the imop works?
Electrical power is made up of two components: active power and reactive power. Active power is referred to as the 'useful' or working energy source, which enables the electrical equipment to perform its function. Reactive power, however, does not perform 'useful' work. Its only function is to develop the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in order to grind the induction windings of the motor.
The imop works by reclaiming, storing and then supplying the reactive power element of electricity to inductive motors and loads. As the electrical equipment operates, this reactive power is 'pulled and pushed' to and from the imop by the motor. Reactive power is then recycled by the imop, which is able to supply it on the spot without having to draw it from the national grid. Savings on electricity bills is just one of the benefits because the motors will also run cooler and more efficiently, and of course require less maintenance. Since cooler motors live considerably longer there is the added bonus of reduced expenditure on capital purchases.
