What are the benefits of AVR?
AdvantagesOutput voltage regulation is good (tap switching) to very good (double conversion)Ultrafast voltage correction speed.No restrictions on the number of correction cycles.Versatility of kVA rating, voltage and configuration.Very low or no regular maintenance.Good line isolation.
