Automatic Power Factor Correction

Automatic Power Factor Correction Panels (also referred as Capacitor Banks) have become essential part of the switchgear installation in order to save electrical energy by ensuring high power factor. These panels comprise of an incomer device branching out to various combinations of capacitors, reactors, HRC fuses & usually capacitor duty contactors along with an intelligent relay. The relay continuously monitors the load condition & controls the power factor though switching ON / OFF a number of capacitors as per pre-defined steps.
