HOW ELESOL® PLATE REDUCES ELECTRICAL INTERFERENCE?
By installing ELESOL® Plates onto the current-carrying cable, the conductor and the ELESOL® Plates will form a coil inductor (electromagnetic circuit). Since this inductor (electromagnetic circuit) is principally the same as an inductor in electronic components, its impedance will increase with higher frequencies. Thus, it transforms as a low-pass filter which attenuates the high-frequency noise.
Secondly, magnetic fields are generated by the current and are reduced by ELESOL® Plates because of this “magnetic flux” nullify the bad signals generated by the current carrying cables and others as well.
The magnetic field of the current will flow through the inner side of the plate, while the magnetic field of the noise current will flow through the outer area. Due to the longer flow path, magnetic loss is converted into heat and dissipated, thus preventing noise emission. This allows noise suppression without the need for grounding.
Magnetic Flux in Detail: The energy of this electric current will turn into magnetic energy. However, as the current changes, the magnetic flux will re-convert into the current through the induction. During this moment, not all the energy of the magnetic flux re-convert back into the energy of the current, and the part which is lost is referred to as magnetic loss (hysteresis loss). Therefore, a part of the noise current, which passes the electric cable, will lose its energy in form of a magnetic loss.
The magnetic flux of the noise current decreases inversely proportionally to the impedance of the plate. Higher impedance will more strongly reduce the noise current. Most of the impedance of a typical coil consists of a reactance (X) component, but when using ELESOL® Plates the resistance component (R) becomes extremely high.
By using ELESOL® Plates with end user devices/machines, manufacturers can greatly improve their products’ ability to reduce high frequency EMI/RFI electronic noise. Power is a measure of how quickly energy is transferred. Efficiency is a measure of how much useful energy or power is transferred. By considering where energy is ‘wasted’ we can improve efficiency.
During energy transformations, energy can neither be created nor destroyed. However, some energy can be transformed into unwanted forms of energy, meaning that there is less useful energy after the change than there was before. In most situations, some energy is changed into heat or noise and lost to the surroundings.
HOW THE ENERGY LOSS CAN HAPPEN?
Electrical energy can be lost during the generation process, during distribution and as we use it in our facilities (Factories, Homes, Offices…etc.).
Generators, Chillers, Pumps…etc. have moving parts which, even when lubricated, rub together to produce friction and heat. Also, those machines are large and noisy, so they produce a noise energy as well.
As electricity as distributed through the National Grid, energy is lost from the transmission lines and when it is transferred from the power stations to the lines and the lines to our facilities.
Finally, we lose energy in our facilities. The machines and appliances we use are not perfect converters, inverters, speed drives…etc. of electricity and therefore we lose some of the electrical energy. For example, the next time you use your laptop or computer, touch the underneath or side and you’ll find it’s very warm. This is because as it processes data, the computer chip gives out heat energy, if the computer with it little consumption could cause these losses, what a huge induction load machine can do???
Therefore, some of the electrical power going into your machine is lost as heat and noise to the surroundings.
