 Power Factor Correction Unit 

Power Factor

A wise man once said: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

The Power Factor of your business perfectly aligns to this adage. Your entire business relies on energy and the secret is this, unless the energy that is supplied to you works in perfect harmony with your equipment, you will lose out. Power factor indicates the ratio between power being consumed (real power) and the power demand (apparent power). The difference between apparent power and real power is inflated because you were over supplied with electricity due to a low Power Factor. (You will be able to track your Power Factor by the Installation of our online meter.)

Power factor, before and after

Once the opportunity is discovered, it can be dealt with by the use of our Power Factor Correction Unit. Through the use of capacitors we can cancel out inductive loads on site, thereby ensuring less demand on the transformer. This in turn can result in lower peak demand and reactive energy charges across various tariff schemes
