PADICON® – the Parallel Difference Power Control
PADICON® can be integrated into your energy management system and is suitable for medium- and mains-frequency furnaces. The process records the demand and power consumption and saves the data. As the work processes are repeated, a characteristic curve is built up. Based on this curve, the process controller synchronises all the furnaces separate cycle times to create a balanced load profile with no peaks in consumption. Thus, work processes with high power consumption no longer take place independently, but are harmonised. Peaks and troughs in demand are balanced out against one another. Until now, production planning and control systems have not displayed the power consumption. However, power consumption is a consistent figure which can be used to make processes transparent.
