Power Factor System

Motivation behind the installation of power factor systems

  • Financial Saving
  • Reduction in Load

Power factor correction - why is it required?

  • Financial Savings
Reduction in maximum demand (kVa) = Rand per kVa Saving
Reduction in Network Access Charge (NMD) = Rand per kVa Saving
Reduction in Reactive Energy (kVarh) = Cents per kVarh Saving (refer Megaflex / Ruraflex Tariff)

  • Equipment upgrading can be delayed as reactive power  sterilizes distribution capacity
  • Reactive power causes power losses in distribution resulting in heat losses
  • Reactive power may cause voltage drops
