Power Factor Correction, Power Savings


In today’s age power consumption is rising day by day. Also the system losses are increasing. To operate the power system economically is a big challenge and necessity today. Some of the power Called ‘reactive power’ is the wasted power. While we only uses the active power. Power Factor which is the ration of active power to apparent power play important role in power Consumption. Ideally the power factor should be unity. But inductive loads causes it to lag below unity. To improve the power factor is a necessity for economical operation. There are Different methods like capacitor banks, synchronous motor etc.
