BASICS OF POWER FACTOR CORRECTION Under normal operating conditions certain electrical loads (e.g. induction motors, welding equipment, arc furnaces and fluorescent lighting) draw not only active power from the supply, but also inductive reactive power (kvar). This reactive power is necessary for the equipment to operate correctly but could be interpreted as an undesirable burden on the supply. The power factor of a load is defined as the ratio of active power to apparent power, i.e. kW : kVA and is referred to as cosφ. The closer cosφ is to unity, the less reactive power is drawn from the supply....

Calculation based on the consumption data - consumption of active energy: - consumption of reactive energy: - number of working hours: 1) Calculation of average active power P 2) Calculation of initial power factor cosφ1 3) From chart 1, we read the factor 1.13 for the improvement of the power factor from 0.6 to 0.98. 4) Calculation of required capacitor power QC = 500 kW · 1.13 = 565 kvar B. Calculation based on the Energy Bill - reactive power tariff: T/kvarh - monthly costs for reactive energy: C - number of working hours: h C Calculation of required capacitor power for cosφ = 1

COMMON METHODS OF POWER FACTOR CORRECTION SINGLE OR FIXED PFC, compensating for the reactive power of individual inductive loads at the point of connection so reducing the load in the connecting cables (typical for single, permanently operated loads with a constant power), constant power demand and long duty cycle GROUP PFC - connecting one fixed capacitor to a group of simultaneously operated inductive loads (e.g. group of motors, discharge lamps), variable power demand and/or variable duty cycle BULK PFC, typical for large electrical systems with fluctuating load where it is common to connect...

WHEN IS IT NECESSARY TO INSTALL A DETUNED PFC SYSTEM? The installation of detuned (reactor-connected) capacitors is designed to force the resonant frequency of the network below the frequency of the lowest harmonic present, thereby ensuring no resonant circuit and, by implication, no amplification of harmonic currents. Such an installation also has a partial filtering effect, reducing the level of voltage distortion on the supply, and is recommended for all cases where the share of harmonic-generating loads (“non-linear loads”) is more than 10% of the rated transformer power. The resonance frequency...

DOES THE MV MAINS CONTAIN AUDIO FREQUENCY CONTROL SIGNALS? Some energy supply companies use higher-frequency signals in their medium voltage mains for the transmission of control pulses and data. These so-called “audio frequency signals” ranging typically from 160 to 1350 Hz may become absorbed or distorted by, or cause resonance problems with capacitor installations. Such problems may be prevented by the selection of proper detuning reactors. Capacitor/PFC system reactive power audio frequency no specific activity consult your power supply company and conduct mains analysis no specific activity...

OPERATION OF CAPACITORS IN HIGH-FREQUENCY-FILTERS OR WITH A VERY HIGH SHARE OF LF OR HF HARMONICS Capacitors which are operated in filters or other systems with a very high share of harmonic distortion, or with harmonics of high frequencies, must be especially selected and prepared for the specific requirements of such applications. We offer special single and three phase capacitors that are optimized for the operation under such circumstances in our following ranges: - 280 MKP-UHD: three phase Ultra Heavy Duty capacitors for demanding operating conditions in power factor correction (such as high...
