Able to work within strict deadlines whilst maintaining the brilliant results that we’re known for, we are the ones to call whenever you want help from the best electricians Leicestershire has.

There exist a vast number of electrical issues and in order to rectify them efficiently, you must be aware of their characteristics. Voltage fluctuations for example are inherently different from every other waveform abnormality, so much that they are placed in their own unique category.

What this variety of fluctuation is exactly is a methodical change of the voltage waveform, or a slew of random voltage shifts, of minor dimensions, namely between 95 to 105% of nominal at a small frequency that is typically lower than 25 Hz. Any load that has the ability to display considerable current alterations can lead to a voltage fluctuation.

Transmission and distribution systems can experience fluctuations for a number of reasons. You can recognise the issues by looking for symptoms such as flickering within incandescent lamps. Strategies to overcome such an electrical fault include installing power line conditioning or UPS mechanisms, relocating your sensitive equipment, and removing the offending load.

Just like any other form of electrical problem, voltage fluctuations should be taken care of by trained individuals who know what they are doing. Any attempt to do repairs without adequate knowledge of the situation can actually worsen the original matter.

At Q-Energy due to our status as an NICEIC,ECA member, all of our work conforms to those standards set out by the Institution of Electrical Engineers. Repeatedly, we have come through for our customers and thanks to the outstanding results we achieve, they keep returning to us when they require assistance. If you discover a fault that needs attending to, don’t hesitate to ask our electricians in Leicestershire for help.
