Industrial Power Factor Correctors & Microprocessor Controlled Automatic Power Factor Correction Regulators
Power factor correction is the practice that makes up for the phase shift introduced into the line by a reactive load. The most significant parameter is the phase shift φ between the voltage and the supply current. Industrial plants with variable absorptions, over time, necessarily require an automatic power factor correction in order to insert the necessary capacitive power.
The benefits range from increasing plant power and reducing losses to saving money. Our microprocessor-controlled automatic power factor correction regulators are designed with signal processing technology that is also highly distorted to ensure accurate control of the plant’s electrical quantities. All measurements are carried out with complete analysis of the waveform and through FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) in floating point to ensure maximum precision on the measurements.
In addition to the normal power factor correction functions, the devices monitor the network and preserve the capacitor banks by disconnecting them in cases of high harmonic distortion and/or microinterruptions. The microprocessor management allows a targeted and distributed use of the batteries, extending the life of the system and a balanced on/off of the capacitors in the network.
