What is the main difference between electromechanical and electronic voltage stabilisers? And which one should you choose?
In this article, we delve into the advantages and disadvantages of electronic and electromechanical voltage stabilisers.
Construction Differences: Electromechanical vs Electronic
The main construction difference between an electromechanical and an electronic stabiliser, also known as a static stabiliser, is determined by the technology of the voltage regulator. In the electromechanical stabiliser, a variable-ratio autotransformer with dynamic rolling contacts varies the supplied voltage, whereas in the electronic stabiliser, the variation occurs via an electronic module based on IGBTs with double conversion technology.
The Choice According to Load: Correction Speed and Accuracy
The choice between these two technologies depends on the type of load. For loads with a sensitive electronic component, an electronic stabiliser with a correction speed of less than 3ms is preferable to an electromechanical stabiliser with an average speed of 30ms/volt.
