Power conditioning is a process of filtering and stabilizing electrical power. It is designed to ensure electricity is supplied to equipment in the most reliable and efficient manner. Power conditioning equipment can take the form of uninterruptible power supplies, voltage regulators, transformers, harmonic filters, and switches. Power conditioning can provide protection against surges, spikes, and other power irregularities that can damage electrical equipment, cause data loss, or even cause fire. It can also be used to provide a more consistent voltage level. Power conditioning is used in a variety of applications, such as industrial, commercial, and residential settings.
