Someone else from 3DFS is explaining the electricky stuff now.

Tripp Tucker? Isn't that a character in Enterprise?

That might be why they explain everything in Klingonese.

Now that I think about it, it does sound very much like some of the technobabble in Star Trek.

If we can phase split the ion beams to regulate the plasma flow...it should work right? ;D

In this case there's some nice edutainment about discussions involving Star Trek and Mr. Spock: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMpofmkxKHBJfta_JzekLbWGHUSLUJoLt

3DFS still providing amusement.

3DFS is the only technology that can save the world, lucky they're on the ball...

Q: What are the 26 parameters being measured/derived within the SDE system?

A: We do not maintain a list of the 26 parameters that are being measured/derived.

... or perhaps not.

WOW...just WOW..

How did I miss this thread. 30 years I've been working in power quality and now all my prayers are answered.

This tidbit did make me giggle:

*Electricity distribution is most efficient when the laws of math and physics are properly applied. This is what this technology does.*

You know, that sounds a LOT like "Engineering" to me.

It seems curious, though, that they want us to believe they have the ability to implement what they are saying - but seem to be utterly incapable of being able to properly explain it.

They are explaining it Brumby, it's just that all of us here have such tiny and primitive brains, we can't comprehend it. It's like explaining calculus to a toddler!
You need to get on their level first, and then it will all become clear how a fast ADC and a proprietary algorithm® can magically make hundreds of amps teleport between phases.

:-DD 3DFS have created a self-induced filter bubble with alternative facts and I assume they would argue that non-believers are those in the filter bubble. Anyhow, the lack of reasonable technical details and proper datasheets clearly shows that they have no clue about their own technology. Presumably it's just a more sophisticated version of the Chinese energy saver plugs with a 2.2 or 3.3µF cap between live and neutral plus an indicator LED powered by a capacitive dropper. Maybe they should help Microsoft to reduce the power consumption of the AI cloud platform required to determine if a system running Win10 could be rebooted when applying updates. :scared:

It was hard work, but good fun in Real Time.

Some of my favorites have always been the high speed measurements.
24-bit resolution at MHz frequencies, done through the same thin wires that supply the 3phase current correction.
It might be just 8-bit resolution per phase and someone's confused?

And of course they're claiming to control voltage and current at the same time all over the place.

I don't see why people are even trying to make sense out of bullshit technobabble. The only purpose is to attract investors/customers who don't know any better, it's never going to make sense to an engineer because it's just that, babble.
