Power Factor Correction Equipment
Improving the power factor will reduce operating cost by eliminating or deferring the need for new equipment, help existing equipment last longer, and make future expansions less costly. Also, lower rating sized equipment can be used, saving unnecessary capital expense.
All this is in addition to a quick return on investment and long term savings that are realized from installing capacitor systems to improve power factor.
From the utility company’s point of view, raising the average operating power factor of the entire grid network could reduce cost from inefficiencies in the network, increase generation and distribution potential and reduce demand on the grid.
The utility can save hundreds of thousands of tonnes of fuel (and produce fewer emissions), have more transformers available and reduce the likelihood of building new power plants and their support systems.
For this reason, many utility companies charge a power factor penalty so they can recover the additional costs incurred from supporting an inefficient system.
- Higher energy usage and costs
- Higher maintenance costs
- Equipment instability and failure
It is therefore critical that power quality be assessed as part of an energy management strategy, and that energy management is an important consideration for any business.
A UPS is generally used to protect data loss from sensitive communication devices, to ensure the reliability of critical equipment such as in hospitals, or to provide minimum power for equipment such as emergency lighting.
