Today in the energy industry we have a conundrum. We want to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels because they are dirty and we want to increase our reliance on Renewables because they are clean. This concept seems very simple. Why aren’t we doing it?   The U.S. Electrical Grid simply can’t handle it.   For clarity, the definition of Grid is every wire connected from Generation whether from...

The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory releases the Energy Flow Chart for the U.S. every year. The latest Energy Flow Chart is here. As we have highlighted previously, the U.S. loses more than 67.8% of the electricity that is generated in our Grid. These losses are categorized as “Rejected Energy.” The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that electricity transmission and distribution losses are 6% annually   US Energy Information...

Data centers electrical networks are filled with thousands of loads all demanding power at the same time. In this video, we isolate a server rack loaded with various storage arrays and GPU accelerated blade servers and individually review a few of the beneficial effects of subcycle correction. The server rack shows a clear operational difference when subcycle correction is turned on. The first section demonstrates the...

3DFS began performing electrical network analyses for prospective clients in October 2015.   The analysis takes less than an hour, does not interrupt power, and demonstrates the benefits of subcycle correction within that specific electrical network. A report is compiled and delivered in a few days showing the difference the electrical network with the power corrected and the power left uncorrected. From this report, monthly savings can...
