Power Factor Controllers PRODUCTS
WHAT IS POWER FACTOR CONTROLLER?
A power factor controller is a device that brings the power factor to the pre-set value. The relay controls the inductive, reactive and capacitive reactive powers of the systems and adjusts these values when necessary. Thus, high efficiency is achieved from the electric energy and energy usage cost is decreased.
Capacitors are deactivated or activated for an optimal setting. A sufficient number of capacitors are activated when the power factor decreases and when the inductive reactive load is drawn from the grid. When capacitive reactive power is drawn, the setting is done by drawing a shunt reactor. The relays continue to take regular measurements.
What is Reactive Power?
It is the electrical power type that occurs due to the difference from voltage and current of the energy passing through the circuit. Reactive power does not contribute to machine’s production of watt. But it is required for machines to work. Because coils need magnetic field in order to be able to work. And they create this field with the power they withdrawn from grids.
Reactive power withdrawn from grids is not consumed in the circuit. It is stored and sent back. Therefore there is always some traffic between two edges. And this causes load on energy conduits. If this traffic isn’t moderated and it reaches high levels you may face reactive punishments.
Power Factor Controller Selection
Some of the important things you need to consider in power factor controller selection are step number, supply voltage range, the operation location conditions and the menu indicators. Tense Electronics power factor controllers include three-phase, monophase models as well as SVC compliant, classical and thyristor triggered models.
Before making your selection, make sure to check our technical documents to find the most suitable products with superior qualities to meet your needs.
