The  Effect:

    Plant  managers and COO's are facing an ever-increasing level of mysterious  electrical problems. Overheated neutrals, hot circuit breakers, unexpected  breaker tripping, dangerously hot transformers, unexplainable equipment  malfunctions, spurious system lockup, and more are now common problems  in many facilities. These problems can cause financial losses through  added maintenance cost, staff downtime and interrupted production. Utility  deregulation is changing metering techniques, which now measures KVAR  instead of watts. The new meters are more accurately measuring true  power factor and penalties are being assessed for insufficient levels
