Power Quality & Energy Efficiency

What is Power Factor?

The technical definition of Power Factor in AC circuits is the ratio of the real power (kW) used to do work and the apparent power (kVA) supplied to the load.

Ideally this should be 1, meaning that all the power supplied is being used to do work. Unfortunately in most real world situations this is not the case.


 Advantages of Power Factor Correction

  • Reduce capital expenses up to 30% – Optimise electrical system capacity, avoid oversizing and limit redundant capacity.
  • Reduce energy losses by up to 30% – Optimise power consumption, reduce total process energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions.
  • Reduce reactive energy billing penalties and lower operating expenses up to 10% – Boost power factor to lower utility bills and reduce losses in transformers and conductors.
  • Improve power system and equipment reliability up to 18% – Increase power quality to improve business performance and reduce unplanned outages, as well as enhance the reliability and service life of electrical devices, while reducing harmonics stress and potential damage to your electrical network.
