Buck Boost Transformers used to compensate for long wire run voltage loss
Applies to Buck Boost Tranformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric
Voltage loss at the load end of long wire runs
In some cases Buck Boost Transformers can be used to compensate for long line voltage drop. However, this is generally practical only if the load is constant. Large changes in load will cause large changes in line voltage drop. The Buck Boost Transformer is not a voltage regulator, and will provide the same percentage of voltage change regardless of load. In some applications, where the Buck Boost Transformer is chosen to correct for full load line drop, the load voltage may get too high at reduced load because the line drop is less.
WARNING: This application may result in excessive voltage to customer loads, causing load equipment damage!
