POWER FACTOR CORRECTION

We offer a full range of solutions for low voltage and high voltage from Nokian Capacitors to solve your power factor problems. Nokian has an enviable reputation as the very best producers of LV and HV capacitors.

WHAT IS POWER FACTOR CORRECTION?

The technical  definition of a power factor in AC circuits is the ratio of real power (kW) used to do work and apparent power (kVA) supplied to the load. Ideally this should be 1, meaning that all the power supplied to the load is being used, unfortunately in the most real world situations this is not the case.

Load power factor has a significant effect on the losses experienced by a customer equipment and electrical network. It can be improved by the design and on installation of local or plant wide power factor correction solutions.

HOW WE CAN HELP YOUR POWER FACTOR CORRECTIONS ISSUES?

Premium Power has considerable experience in designing, supplying, commissioning and project managing power factor correction solutions for industrial, commercial and utility applications. Likewise, Premium Power can provide the most cost effective power factor correction solutions tailored to meet your exact requirements.

ADVANTAGES OF POWER FACTOR CORRECTION

  • Reduce capital expenses up to 30% – Optimise electrical system capacity, avoid oversizing and limit redundant capacity.
  • Reduce energy losses by up to 30% – Optimise power consumption, reduce total process energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions.
  • Reduce reactive energy billing penalties and lower operating expenses up to 10% – Boost power factor to lower utility bills and reduce losses in transformers and conductors.
  • Improve power system and equipment reliability up to 18% – Increase power quality to improve business performance and reduce unplanned outages, as well as enhance the reliability and service life of electrical devices, while reducing harmonics stress and potential damage to your electrical network.

FEATURED CASE STUDY
ESB Networks - Grid Power Quality Solution

ESB Networks is the Distribution System Operator in the Republic of Ireland. Premium Power has worked closely with ESB Networks for over a decade to provide and support a country wide power quality and power monitoring solution. The result is a large network of Power Quality meters (ION 7650’s) integrated into the powerful ION Enterprise power monitoring system. Maintaining and managing a network of this size presents unique communication and configuration challenges.
