Reactive Power Conditioner - PFC LITE

The PFC LITE uses high speed IGBT inverter technology to control reactive power flow inside the facility.

The PFC’s automatically detect any power fluctuations and respond within less than a cycle to provide the needed reactive power. They also continuously monitor and correct power factor despite large power variations.

Key Features:
  • Modular design provides high reliability and simple maintenance.
  • Integrated solution for Power factor correction, harmonics and inrush generated voltage sags.
  • Ratings 100kVAr to 2000kVAr voltage 380V AC to 480V AC.
  • 600/690V and MV systems and larger MVar systems available as special custom order.
Applications:
  • Data Centers for correction of leading power factor
  • Flicker correction back to the utility supply caused by the customer load
  • Automation and robotic applications
  • HIgh-speed manufacturing processes

FAQ

Definition of Reactive Power

Reactive power is the part of complex power that corresponds to storage and retrieval of energy rather than consumption.
On an AC power system, there are two kinds of power - real power that actually does work, and reactive power that enables transformers to transform, generators to generate, and motors to rotate.
Capacitors can be used to intercept the reactive power from inductive motors, and return it to the source on the next cycle.
Reactive power is the part of complex power that corresponds to storage and retrieval of energy rather than consumption.

Reactive power and why does it matter?

Reactive power (VArs) is either generated or absorbed by inductive loads or capacitors in the network to maintain a constant voltage level. Reactive power matter because it help to support the nominal voltage level of the transmission and distribution system to allow the efficient transfer of real power across the transmission and distribution lines.

Reactive power is critical to maintain voltage levels within the electrical network.

What causes reactive power in a system?

Positive reactive power is caused by inductive loads like motors or transformers. Negative reactive power is caused by capacitive loads like variable frequency drives, switch-mode power supplies and inverters.

When is reactive power compensation necessary?

In general, more reactive power is needed for a load with a power factor of less than 0.95. For a load, a power factor number greater than 0.95 indicates that the power is being used more efficiently, and a value of 1.0 indicates that the load is perfect and uses no reactive power.
