Power Factor Correction

Load power factor has a significant effect on the losses experienced by equipment and the electrical network which is fixed by power factor correction.

 


What is power factor?

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 to the work unfortunately in the most real world situations this is not the case.

What is Power Factor Correction?

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.

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 any exacting demands.

 Advantages of Power Factor Correction

 

Power Factor Correction reduces cost and increases reliability
  • 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.
