|Some of the electrical equipment manufaturers claim to manufacture product to save electricity cosumption.|
But electricity energy consumption can not be controlled or saved by putting energy saving devices along with electrical appliences.
Actually such energy savers are nothing but voltage stabilisers connected along with electrical appliences.They are marketing the stabiliser in the name of Energy Saver.
It is true that the momentary voltage fluctuations may damage any electrical appliance for which Voltage Stabilisers have got funtion to stabilise the system instantly.
During prolonged low system voltage the electrical equipment say Pump motor of 2 hp capacity at specified 230 volts will draw more current at such lower voltage for performing its rated capacity to work and the energy consumption will be increased as the suare of higher current valu and subsequently increases the total power consumtion.
This may be cleared from the following emperical relations of current,voltage,time and energy cosumtion:
Energy consumtion is drectly proportional to Sq. of current*rated voltage*time in hours.
However power saving is a big suject in Electrical Engineering.
Best way to save power is to use Branded electrical appliences,replacing Incandacent filament lamps by CFL lamp or tube light.
Electrical applinces like A.C machine,TV,Computers,Gyser etc should be used in a controlled way as per instructions given in their manuals.
We have seen in the market that picture tubes in tv and computer are being replaced by LCD for very negligible heating.
Heat emissions in electrical equipment is one of the main sources of high energy consumtions.

|Though, I am not sure all above info is correct or not but as Mr. Nilesh Panchal is Dimond here. Hence, it's hard to believe he will post non-seance.|
I am also looking for information on power saver devices before buying them and find this. This seems to be a good info (even if not 100 true). As far as Carbon is concern I think these produces reduce or prevent carbon deposit after installation.
Thanks for above information. If anyone have additional information please share with us.

|FIRS I like to say the power has two componant active power and reactive power the active consuming by heaters boilersand reactiver generally taken by motors microwave oven....etc, the active power can not saved because it mean work, heat and can save it only for certin cnditions by advanced devices about 20:30% but the device u talk|
about used capacitors to reduce reactive power and increase voltag and the home energy meter only measure active energy

|So, where can I buy energy saving device which works for home in India??|

|No such thing as Power Saver Device. Check this.|
