Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
Just reading your solutions to problem. Can you please explain brown out.
Brown-out .... What is it?
Brown-out is a condition of lower than normal power line voltage being supplied by your local utility or generating equipment. This condition may be short term (minutes to hours) or long term (1/2 day or more). A power line voltage reduction of 8 - 12% is usually considered a Brown-out.
What causes Brown-outs? Electric utilities (your local, lovable Power Company) may occassionally reduce line voltage to Brown-out levels in an effort to adequately manage power generation and distribution during periods of heavy usage. Very hot days, when most air conditioning and refrigeration equipment would be operating almost continuously, is an example of such a situation.
Even without utility intervention, extreme overloads caused by most air conditioning and refrigeration equipment operation could tax the electrical distribution system to the point where a permanent brown-out state could exist over much of the power company distribution network.
Locations at ends of long electric distribution lines may experience chronic Brown-out conditions due to line loss. Intermittent heavy loads on this trunk circuit may cause the Brown-out effect to fluctuate with the load.
Installations using ship-board or temporary power sources are especially prone to operation in a Brown-out mode. Usually of limited capacity, it is quite easy to overload the power source, giving rise to permanent Brown-out. (Permanent Black-out, if users are not careful).
What are some common effects of Brown-outs? Brown-outs are the mother of all sorts of Bad Stuff.
Power supplies in some electronic equipment may fall out of regulation. Errors, due to erratic power supply performance, may creep into computer operations.Other electronic equipment may function poorly - or not function at all.
Marginally performing devices (electronic or electric) will probably cease operation entirely.
Motors will overheat. Some motor types will slow down.
Electrical interference will greatly increase. Increased interference may affect computer and communication operations.
Off-line UPS units (the vast majority of lower cost units) continuously cycle between power line and internal battery operation. UPS batteries (generally sized to provide only 5 - 10 minutes back-up) will soon be discharged, unable to generate additional Back Up power. You are out of business. If system has not been shut-down, the entire system (UPS & computer) may snap back to life when power rises slightly, only to again shut down when the power line voltage falls back into the Brown-out zone. Such "ON-OFF" operational cycling is unhealthy for UPS, batteries and connected electronics. For Brown-out correction see our Voltage Regulator Page.
Spikes generated by electrical machinery also greatly increase. Air conditioners, refrigerators and other motorized devices generate local spikes. Industrial machinery (often miles away) create additional spikes which may find their way unto the electrical distribution system, and into your sensitive, valuable equipment.
