Demand Side Response to the Golden Frequency
Synectic’s SD037 frequency monitor enables high speed, high accuracy, frequency monitoring even with high levels of harmonic noise. It is designed to monitor the frequency of a mains voltage signal and report the value, on demand, via an RS232 serial interface. Our clients control systems activate the electricity generating assets of big energy users like sainsbury’s and Tarmac. switching power from solar, wind ground heat pumps and Bo gas energy generators to the grid at times of peak demand. Without the reliable fast measurement they could not help to keep the lights.
It features a 3 pole low pass Bessel filter with a -3dB frequency of 75Hz. This removes unwanted harmonics from the input signal.
