CIRCUTOR - Electrical Energy Efficiency Equipment

CIRCUTOR SA is one of the leading European companies focused on the design, manufacture and marketing of electrical energy efficiency equipment. The company offers products and solutions ranging from measuring and electric control, protection and control, quality and metering to power factor correction and harmonic filtering. We serve customers in more than 100 countries and employ more than 900 people worldwide.

CIRCUTOR SA has over 40 years experience and eight manufacturing facilities located in Spain, Czech Republic, Argentina and India. The company has developed a worldwide local presence their own commercial offices in Germany, Norway, Spain, Portugal, Czech Republic, UA Emirates, Argentina, US, Singapore, India, China and Turkey. Through their wide range of products and solutions CIRCUTOR SA are present in the generation, transmission and distribution segments of the electrical market.

CIRCUTOR SA was founded in 1973 and its growth has been fuelled by investments in R&D, technologies and business processes. With more than 70 researchers and fully equipped laboratories CIRCUTOR SA are continuously working to satisfy their customer demands and developing the last technological breakthroughs. CIRCUTOR SA manufacturing sites and processes are fully certified according to ISO9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and QC 080000 which demonstrates their commitment to product quality and respect for the environment.

Electrical Self Consumption

The reduced cost of solar installations brought together with the increased cost of electrical energy produced by end consumers in recent years, has paved the way for the arrival of grid parity in many regions throughout the world.

Photovoltaic electrical energy consists of generating electrical energy with photovoltaic panels for self-consumption.

The solutions offered fall into three groups based on the relationship established between solar production and the electrical network for each case:

  • Installations isolated from the grid
  • Installations with time-delayed self-consumption
  • Installations with instantaneous self-consumption

CIRCUTOR SA establishes a union between knowledge of the measurement, management and improvement of the quality of the electrical energy of the CIRCUTOR group, and taking advantage of the renewable sources that produce it, has designed solutions for integrating renewable energies in the electrical network in self-consumption applications, both instantaneous and time-delayed for industrial applications, service and even residential buildings.

A solution for every building

Given that every building has a different demand curve as well as distinctiveness in terms of grid availability, CIRCUTOR Energy has designed different solutions that adapt to each individual case in order to offer better solar resource management while optimizing efficiency, simplifying management and allowing the greatest possible cost savings.

What is instantaneous self-consumption?

Instantaneous self-consumption consists of generating electrical energy and consuming it at the same time.

This particular form of electricity generation greatly increasing because it is this form of electricity generation that makes it possible to authorise generation installations as any type of electrical installation. Instantaneous self-consumption simplifies and reduces the cost of managing photovoltaic installation to the authorities, making it equivalent in legislation terms to a diesel generator.

This simplification means that more and more consumers are becoming interested in instantaneous self-consumption as an alternative, efficient and cheaper energy source.
