Power Factor Correction

circuit breaker field services

A power factor correction study is a steady-state analysis of the power system's capability to supply the connected load for normal or proposed operating conditions. The study determines the real (kW) and reactive (kVAR) power flow and power factor through various components, lines and branches of a power system. This data is used to determine the following:

  • Reactive Power Flows
  • Need, Ratings and Location of Capacitors for Power Factor Correction
  • Basic Economic Analysis and Payback Period for Recommended Equipment
