Why Should I Improve My Power Factor?

Increased system capacity and reduced system losses in your electrical system  By adding capacitors (KVAr generators) to the system, the power factor is improved and the KW capacity of the system is increased.Uncorrected power factor causes power system losses in your distribution system.By improving your power factor, these losses can be reduced.With the current rise in the cost of energy, increased facility efficiency is very desirable.And with lower system losses, you are also able to add additional load to your system.

Recall that inductive loads, which require reactive power, caused your low power factor. This increase in required reactive power (KVAR) causes an increase in required apparent power (KVA), which is what the utility is supplying.So, a facility’s low power factor causes the utility to have to increase its generation and transmission capacity in order to handle this extra demand.By raising your power factor, you use less KVAR. This results in less KW, which equates to a dollar savings from the utility


In Conclusion

  • Minimizing operation of idling or lightly loaded motors.We already talked about the fact that low power factor is caused by the presence of induction motors. But, more specifically, low power factor is caused by running induction motors lightly loaded.
  • Avoiding operation of equipment above its rated voltage.
  • Replacing standard motors as they burn out with energy-efficient motors.
Electricity bills anywhere in India are complicated, to say the least. And you can’t spare much time to dig beyond the total amount and units consumed. There are more heads of charges. Do you know that you can avoid many of these charges or reduce them? We identify the opportunities, connect you with the vendors, and show the savings.
