We are honored to announce that Popular Mechanics has awarded 3DFS the 2017 Breakthrough Award for Software-Defined Electricity, labeling it an innovation that changed the world this year; Hyperefficient Digitized Electricity.   We would like to offer a special thank you to Ezra Dyer and all of the Popular Mechanics staff that were involved to make this happen. We have been working on this company for many...

Data Center Instability Needs a Reliably Trackable Metric   It is understood that uptime is mission critical for a data center. We design our data centers with multiple redundancies, secondary and tertiary backup power, high quality components and infrastructure, distributed UPS and PDUs, and the list goes on. A lot of thought is put into the building of the infrastructure, layout and load profile for data centers...

We can adapt this technology to be put inside refrigerators and HVAC units and provide 3DFS Software-Defined Power within them.   The major benefit from this is smooth continuous undistorted power for the unit that will include complete surge protection. The unit will require less current to startup and during operation of the device and the continuous match of power demand will prevent motors from galloping during...

Digital Measurement   At the core of 3DFS technology is the ability to measure absolute electrical parameter values at the nanosecond level. This alone is of considerable value. Right now, anywhere in the world, including in all of the live electrical environments that power our homes and businesses, electricity is not precisely measured, rather it is semi-accurately calculated using integrated RMS values, which are simply averages. This...

Grid Resiliency When dissecting the concept of grid resiliency, it is clear that the grid is an amassment of smaller independent electrical networks which are somewhat unstable, frequently demonstrating disruption of service which can be as simple as a flicker or as consequential as a loss of power. The interconnection of precarious electrical networks increases both the complexity and instability of the overall grid and decreases...

The instant that the VectorQ2 is turned ON you will begin saving power and money.  These must be looked at separately because the amount of money you are charged is only partly determined by the amount of power you consume.  When and how your Data Center consumes power is factored into how you are charged, i.e.  demand charges, kVAR penalties, day and night rates, etc.   Savings...

Fossil fuel generation of electricity is directly related to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and regardless of the regional differences in power generation profiles, a substantial portion of the electricity supplied to facilities worldwide is generated from some fossil fuel source. Those GHG emissions are considered when calculating the carbon footprint from electricity consumption of a company or location. In every methodology of calculation used...

During the first 90 years of the Grid, electricity was mainly used for motors and incandescent lights. That meant nearly a century of growth providing electricity to homes and businesses for relatively predictable purposes.       In the last 35 years, we have increased our reliance on computers and precision electronics throughout every sector and in every area of our country. This shift from static and predictable electricity...

  Interested in learning more about Automatic Phase Balancing and the numerous other benefits of the Software-Defined Electricity Approach? Click HERE     Take a moment to consider how important balance is in electricity. When the balance that is required in the natural order of electricity is thrown off, electric potential energy rapidly becomes kinetic energy. But how sensitive is an electrical environment? How many electrons does it take...

Energy storage is a very popular topic throughout the world today. Effective and efficient energy storage is a security issue, it is an environmental issue, and it is an economic issue. It is safe to say that this topic is important to the world at large. There is news that will bring relief to everybody who is concerned with the direction that energy storage has...
