What Is Power Factor Correction?

Power-factor correction increases the power factor of a load, improving efficiency for the distribution system to which it is attached. Linear loads with low power factor (such as induction motors) can be corrected with a passive network of capacitors or inductors.

Non-linear loads, such as rectifiers, distort the current drawn from the system. In such cases, active or passive power factor correction may be used to counteract the distortion and raise the power factor. The devices for correction of the power factor may be at a central substation, spread out over a distribution system, or built into power-consuming equipment.

How Can Power Factor Correction Help?

Power Factor Correction can ultimately reduce the demand for power and save on electricity costs. The units can help with removal of dusty and deposit build-up, and can increase the functionality of all electrical connections.

Following installation of our units, you will immediately notice a reduction in your electricity bill. This will subsequently negate the cost of Power Factor Correction, where you will save money in the long term (estimated at approximately 12 months).
