The Power Factor Correction of Three Phase Induction Motor
Sanket Pawar, Chetan Medhane, Yogesh Patade, Tushar Pandhi, Dr. Deepak Kadam
This paper demonstrates how a capacitor bank can improve the power factor of an induction motor. Power factor increases will instantly result in energy savings. Any provider of electrical services strives for a power factor of one because, if it is less, they must provide the consumer with more current for a given amount of power use. They incur more line losses. The most widely used electrical motors are induction motors because of their dependability, affordability, and durability. Three-phase AC induction motors are the primary power source for the vast majority of equipment used in industrial and mining applications. It is estimated that between 70% and 80% of the electricity used worldwide is used by these motors. Under zero load, induction motors have a relatively low power factor. It gets more adept at transitioning from no load to heavy load. Power factor correction is achieved by connecting capacitors in parallel with the relevant motor circuits at the starter, switchboard, or distribution panel.
