Power Factor Correction

What is Power Factor?
Power that is used by electrical equipment is known as real power. A site may also draw power that is not directly used, this is known as reactive power. The combination of the two is known as apparent power. Power Factor is the relationship between real and apparent power. If a site has poor Power Factor, it could be paying for energy that cannot be used.

What is Powre Factor correction?
Power Factor Correction (PFC) equipment is a technology which when installed allows the consumer to reduce their electricity bill by maintaining the level of reactive power consumption. If a sites Power Factor falls below a predetermined figure then the electricity company adds reactive power charges to your bill. In general, the strain on electrical infrastructure is reduced if Power Factor is good.

Power factor correction

PFC systems introduce a reactive load which supplies reactive power of an opposite sign to that exported by a site, thereby having a cancelling effect.
The ideal Power Factor ratio is 1:0. Poor Power Factor has a negative impact on a site including drawing more power from the network causing losses at transformers, reducing effective capacity and incurring ‘poor Power Factor’ or ‘reactive power’ charges from the supplier.
Advantages of improved power factor include reducing power demand from the network (which will result in lower electricity bills), prolonging lifespan of equipment, reducing losses in supply transformers and increasing the effective capacity of your electrical network.
