Backfeeding is a physical process that is useful in many applications, such as electric vehicles, for the purpose of energy recovery. However, in an industrial setting, backfeeding can be a problem and lead to costly system downtimes if the power supplies fail.
However, even system operators are often not aware of the backfeeding figures in real operating conditions. There is a lack of specific data concerning the frequency and the maximum values. A detailed real-life load profile is helpful when choosing a suitable power supply during the planning phase and when analysing faults in the operating phase.
In our blog article you will learn how you can obtain these data with our FIEPOS field power supplies.
