Transient Voltage (Surge) Protection
Electric Submersible Pump installations can be adversely affected by cumulative transient voltage. The transients generated by external forces such as lightning, line slapping, grid switching, and/or internal forces like system switching, arcing ground faults, etc., attack electric insulation from the service entrance (switchboard/VSD) to the downhole motor. Continuous attacks weaken the insulation until it can no longer absorb the transient, thus stopping the flow of electricity to the pump motor.
The solution to minimizing this destructive element is the installation of a TVSS (Transient Voltage Surge Suppression). To learn more about TVSS and protecting your Electric Submersible Pump, visit Magney-Grande at:
