The Project

Proposed technology is a novel transformer design that mitigates harmonics to save energy and reduce electricity cost for the facility owner (i.e. Building) in addition to qualifying for rebates from the power utility. Some other benefits are minimizing flickering, equipment failures, false trips or power quality issues.
