Power Factor Correction
Power Factor Correction can be thought of as the ratio between the useful power (kW) to the total power (kVA) consumed by an item of AC electric equipment . Power Factor Correction is a measure of how efficiently your electrical power is converted into useful electric output.
As a business you will hopefully now be aware of the Carbon Reduction Commitment, The Carbon Reduction Commitment is a mandatory carbon emissions trading scheme that covers all organisations using excess of more than 6,000MWh per year of electricity. There are solutions available to help you achieve your targets, Power Factor Correction being one of the most efficient solutions available today.
Power Factor Correction is a measure of electrical efficiency, a typical power factor not utilising Power Factor Correction in most commercial and industrial organisations is around 0.80pf (80% electrically efficient) which in real terms means a 1000 Kva transformer can only supply an 800Kw load, a reduction in utilisation by approximately 20% which can also be applied to the switch gear and cables.
Power Factor correction targets the “inductive reactive currents” by intelligently introducing capacitors onto the supply to counteract the inductive element of the load. Which can increase the electrical efficiency to around 1.00pf (100% electrically efficient)
Power Factor Correction Will give some excellent Savings on your monthly utility bills, it will also reduce circuit currents which will allow additional loads to be fitted to an otherwise inefficient electrical system. be sure to take advantage of all the savings using Power Factor Correction
