Automatic power factor correction, passive power factor correction
As we know that power system load is increasing day by day as the industrial and commercial load is increasing. In modern power system most of the load is inductive load that cause to reduced power factor and system losses its efficiency, When the power factor is less than one the ‘missing’ power is known as reactive power which unfortunately is necessary to provide a magnetizing field required by motors and other inductive loads to perform their desired functions. Reactive power can also be interpreted as wattles, magnetizing or wasted power and it represents an extra burden on the electricity supply system and on the consumer’s bill. So we need to improve the power factor with a suitable method to compensate this inductive load capacitive load is must require. Inductive load is consume reactive power in the system which affect generation of plant (in power system load is dynamic as it change according time). The main application of APFC panel is it has automatic capacitor which connected according to requirement of reactive power for control and correction the power factor near to unity for efficient transmission line. Automatic power factor correction techniques can be applied in the industries for better utilization of the electrical energy with better power factor.
