Electrical Power Quality and Consumption in Ginning

John D. Andreuccetti


The paper is to inform, demonstrate and educate the ginners of cotton on the cost of electrical power consumed in their plant. It will define what utilities charge and desire from its customers. It will illustrate options and steps a ginner of cotton may take to reduce electrical energy cost and better control the continuous process of ginning cotton. The theory is to provide an electrical system that presents connected horsepower as apparent horsepower. It will define the devices used to produce the presentation of power to the utility by a gin facility. This will convey the meaning of power quality to the utilities and to the gin. The resulting theory will reduce power consumption at the ginning facility. Reduced electrical demand and power factors that are well beyond utilities requirements.
