Power Factor Correction
Reactive energy results in unnecessary costs and needs to be compensated. The compensation device designed specifically for compensation of reactive energy consists of a power factor controller, a contactor and capacitator banks. The reactive power factor regulator is used to switch the banks on and off depending upon the strength of the network current and the required value, thus compensating for the reactive power (energy). Iskra, d.d. is capable of supplying a complete system, with our company providing power factor controller and supplying the adjustor, contactors and the capacitor banks.
To minimalize the effect of reactive power which is needed for most of electrical devices like asynchronous motors, collective motors of rotation current, transformers, chokes, induction heating stoves, welding devices, fluorescent lamps and many others, which results with additional costs for energy supply and also in additional loads on transmissible lines and other contact elements, can be improved with compensation of reactive power by fitting a suitable capacitor between the inductive consumer and the generator.
