POWER FACTOR is the ratio between the useful (true) power (kW) to the total (apparent) power (kVA) consumed by an item of a.c. electrical equipment
or a complete electrical installation. It is a measure of how efficiently electrical power is converted into useful work output.
The ideal power factor is unity, or one.
Causes of low Power Factor. The main cause of low Power factor is Inductive Load. As in pure inductive circuit, Current lags 90° from Voltage,
this large difference of phase angle between current and voltage causes zero power factor.
Power Factor Correction Calculator
Improving the PF can maximize current-carrying capacity, improve voltage to equipment, reduce power losses, and lower electric bills.
PF correction capacitors act as reactive current generators. They help offset the non-working power used by inductive loads,
thereby improving the power factor.
Due to extensive use of Power Electronics based controlling gears used in present modern equiptment, we strongly recommend to do
Power quality study to ascertain harmonics in system if any are within precribed limit as per guidelines set from time to time by SEBs of respective states.
: Chances of Prematured failures, and amplification of harmonics is observed if compensation Capacitors are installed
in "Harmonics Enviornment" without damping Reactors, else install
