Piller powering modern manufacturing and process industries
Modern Manufacturing and Process industries use Piller technologies for clean, stable reliable power generation and protection.
Over many decades in multiple sectors manufacturing equipment has been supported through the deployment of Piller power generation and protection products.
As manufacturing transforms through production line automation, use of robots, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), these technologies are changing the factory floor in every type of industry.
Now with new technologies being deployed in factories throughout the world the need for high levels of resilience, stability and conditioned electricity provided by Piller UPS, Transfer, Back up and storage products is growing rapidly.
Piller is responding with new technology advances driving greater levels of reliability, efficiency and scale with products such as the new generation Uniblock UPS range.
Modern factories cannot rely on unreliable grid power alone and using Piller on-site generation products, stabilization and power conditioning and kinetic and battery energy storage.
Piller products are renowned for their efficiency and reliability often requiring little or no maintenance meaning costly and disruptive production line downtime is avoided.
Piller offers a comprehensive package of services that can be tailored to client specific requirements: Technical consultation, Operator training, Functional testing, Maintenance, Fault analysis and troubleshooting, Customer training, Remote system diagnosis and support, 24/7/365 emergency call out.
Case study: Power Supply of a 35 MW Semiconductor Fab
This example shows the power supply system of a semiconductor fab, which includes a cogeneration plant of nine 3.9 MW generator sets with natural gas engines. Both electricity and heat power is transported over several hundred meters from the energy plant to the production facility.
The role of the stabiliser system is interfacing the high quality supply bus with the raw utility bus in order to provide back up from utility while blocking all grid born disturbances. Due to this interface it is possible to exchange electrical power with utility up to a level of 5 MW in each direction. This allows operating the gas engines on a high efficiency level according to the current heat demand of the fab.
The second task of the stabilisers is to disconnect the high quality supply bus from utility in case of a mains failure and to ensure power balancing in the resulting island grid.
The unique mode of operation of the flywheel storage allows contribution and absorption of full power. The ability of bi-directional power flow ensures excellent frequency control especially under transient conditions, keeping the whole systems frequency within tight limits
Protecting global pharmaceutical production
Pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities operated by the world’s largest drug companies rely on Piller UPS, convertor, stabiliser and energy storage technologies for power protection.
Pharma fermentation, liquid formulation manufacture, vaccine production and tablet and capsule making that produces hundreds of billions of pills and vaccines each year needs multiple megawatts of protected power.
Inside giant factories, stable power at scale runs the continuous operation of vital environmental control systems, air handling units and data centres.
