The results of the Danieli Automation Q-One power system installed at ABS Sisak meltshop for special steel (Croatia), confirmed an impressive increase of active power availability and EAF efficiency.
Q-One technology provides the most stable, low-disturbance effect (flicker and power factor) on the electrical power network along with the most advanced, dynamic, fast, electrode control system reducing electrode consumption through hi-performance power unit. The upgrade of the 78-t melting unit by Q-One at ABS Sisak, led to 20% reduction of electrode consumption and a 10% shorter power-on time.
One of the targets of the upgrade at ABS Sisak was to comply with the narrower rules applied by the Croatian electrical energy supplier. A very low network flicker due to a quick control of voltage and current and a power factor constantly above 0,96 were achieved. Q-One offers unmatched power control and handling and does not require any SVC installation. Danieli Digimelter is the revolutionary melting tool and will open a new era in steelmaking.
