Amici MPTS enables facilities to “instantly” reduce consumption of electricity, extend the life of existing electric-powered equipment, minimize carbon emissions, and reduce electricity costs. Amici MPTS (maximum power transfer solutions) improves the power quality in facilities via cool, cleaned, conditioned electricity that is fully used by an electrical component without wasting electrical power. MPTS is the most efficient use of electrical power for inductive loads.
Publicly presented in May 2016, the Amici MPTS technology is currently used in the U.S. by 80 organizations, including the U.S. Air Force, Underwriters Laboratory, and several feature film studios, school districts, healthcare facilities, and manufacturing facilities, as well as facilities in Canada, Dubai, and Mexico. The MPTS technology was introduced by TransPower, a company focused on the development, manufacture, and global distribution of innovative, energy savings devices and technologies to commercial and industrial customers.
Approximately one half of the electric power used in industrial and commercial enterprises is used to power electric motors. The preponderance of these motors are large multi-horsepower 3-phase induction motors. These motors produce the mechanical power that drives escalators, elevators, chillers, air handlers, and other applications. Reducing the current requirements of induction motors by minimizing their reactive power consumption can result in significant savings in electric power bills.
An MPTS unit precisely senses the supply input and demand output, matches the electrical impedance parameters, adjusts the resonance of the resulting network loop, and synchronizes and optimizes the output. This process occurs at very high speeds in the MPTS device thereby eliminating virtually all the wasted electrical power in the system.
Key features of MPTS include:
- Avoidance of overload conditions and hot spots in panels and equipment
- Reduces total electrical power and current consumption
- Decreases inductive load demand by 20% to 40%
- Decreases in I2R, kVAr and harmonics losses
- Does not introduce a parasitic load on the electrical network
- Improves power factor; impedance matching, total harmonic distortion, and delivers voltage stabilization to a level greater than installed correction equipment; and results in the reduction of total electrical power requirements
- Requires little service (the only moving parts are cooling fans)
- Provides a dynamic integrated solution that performs power quality management tasks in virtual real-time (sample rate 20,000 samples/sec.)
Typically each $200,000 investment in MPTS equipment returns $100,000 to $200,000 a year in cost savings.
