New Technology for Power Factor Correction
Power factor correction filters are devices that can significantly improve the energy efficiency of electrical systems. These filters work by correcting the power factor of electrical loads, which is the ratio of real power (which does useful work) to apparent power (which is the total power drawn by the load). Power Factor, or the ratio of real power to apparent power, has an ideal measurement of 1. When the power factor is low, more current is drawn from the power source than is actually needed to perform the intended work, resulting in wasted energy and higher electricity bills.
By installing power factor correction filters, facilities and manufacturing plants reduce energy consumption, lower electricity bills, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These filters are particularly useful for electrical systems with inductive loads, such as motors, transformers, and fluorescent lighting.
Capacitor banks have commonly been used for power factor correction, but they are not ideal and leave room for improvement. Enerdoor understood this and developed a new power factor correction filter, the FINSVG, which is a better solution for power factor correction than the commonly used capacitor banks.
Unlike capacitor banks, the FINSVG is immune to harmonics through active load balancing by advanced digital control. The compensation capacity never declines, and the system is capable of compensating both inductive and capacitive reactive power. The Enerdoor FINSVG offers compensation starting at 30 KVAR with a modular design and can be either wall or rack-mounted. It is available starting at 208 Vac and may be installed in either a single unit or multiple, parallel modules for entire facilities.
Improving power quality increases equipment reliability, reduces downtime, and improves safety. Enerdoor is committed to achieving optimal power quality and ensuring the smooth operation of industrial facilities for any application or industry.
