Power Factor

What is power factor correction?

Power factor correction refers to the practice of compensating for the phase shift introduced in the line by reactive loads. The most significant parameter is the phase angle (φ) between the voltage and current in the power supply. Industrial installations with variable loads over time necessarily require automatic power factor correction to introduce the necessary capacitive power.

The benefits of power factor correction range from increased system power and reduced losses to economic savings. Our automatic power factor controllers with microprocessor management are designed with signal processing technology capable of accurately controlling the electrical quantities of the system, even under heavily distorted conditions, ensuring precise measurements.

In addition to the normal power factor correction functions, the devices monitor the network and preserve the capacitor banks by disconnecting them in cases of high harmonic distortion and/or micro-interruptions. Microprocessor management allows targeted and distributed use of the capacitors, extending the system’s lifespan and ensuring balanced connection/disconnection of the capacitors in the network.
