Power Capacitors PRODUCTS


Power capacitors are circuit elements used in low voltage systems. They enable correcting the power factor. They consist of an insulator material between two conductive plates. They are generally used for reactive power control, data protection, frequency generation, AC/DC transformation and filtering purposes. They transfer alternating current instead of direct current.

Power capacitors have a simple operating principle. They hold and store the electric load when there is voltage. Although they are similar to batteries in terms of storage function, there are also differences. The most important difference is how the electricity is stored and their charge/discharge speeds.  When necessary, power capacitors enable the usage of the energy stored as the electric field.

Compensation capacitors has two main types;

Single-phase capacitor:

The main difference between single-phase capacitors and tri-phase capacitors are their withstanding levels to power. A single-phase capacitor has one coil in it. While it works frequency fluctuation happen.

They are used in systems that require low energies. Such as houses and small businesses.

Tri-phase capacitor:

Tri-phase capacitors are more durable models that are used when higher power levels are needed. Three coils work in it. Current and frequency are more stable. They are used in places like factories and they are easier to maintain.

What to consider when choosing Compensation Capacitors?

The main factor to consider in the selection of these elements also known as capacitors is the power, capacity, voltage values, current value and the insulator material.

Also, for economics you should definitely check it’s lifetime. Their sizes due to the characteristics of the area they will be used in and their working temperature ranges are important as well.

In addition to that, we recommend safety, cooling and insulation properties in Tense’s various power capacity models.
