Emily Morgan Hotel Receives Rebates with Quattro DC Drives

San Antonio, TX

Elevator | Power & Motion Technology | by Samantha Lotz | Mar 24, 2014


Magnetek introduced the first North American commercial installation of the Quattro regenerative elevator drive at the Emily Morgan Hotel in San Antonio, Texas. As a result of using the green technology of Magnetek's Quattro elevator drive, the Emily Morgan Hotel will receive $16,865 in commercial energy rebates from the local utility CPS Energy as part of rebate program offered in 2007 by San Antonio City Public Services. Quattro drives were installed as part of an elevator modernization project at the hotel, which is one of the most widely recognized landmarks in downtown San Antonio. One of the objectives of the project was to improve the efficiency of the elevator's energy consumption.

 

This study, with actual before-and-after energy consumption measurements taken in a side-by-side 17-day operating period during modernization, demonstrated a 45% reduction in watt-hours, a 78% reduction in volt-amp hours, and a 31% reduction in peak-demand charges with the Magnetek Quattro drives in place.

 

Quattro is an optimal choice for use on large DC motors. Isolation transformers and ripple filters are no longer necessary, and because of near unity power factor, there is less loading of the AC feeder lines to the elevator equipment, which eliminates the need for larger feeding wiring to the elevator. Magnetek's Quattro allows for efficient reuse of an existing DC motor, offering additional cost savings to the Emily Morgan Hotel modernization project. The Quattro provides energy savings, lower installation costs, and superior ride quality. The regenerative and low harmonic technology of Quattro is the green solution for yesterday's, today's – and tomorrow's – buildings.
