How can Power Factor Correction benefit you?
Understanding Power Factor Correction (PFC) is the first step towards experiencing the many benefits associated with good power factor. Poor power factor means poor electrical efficiency and in turn, the lower the power factor, the higher the apparent power drawn from the distribution network.
One side effect of this is higher capital expenditures and operating costs for distributors, which in many cases pass on to the consumer in the form of higher tariff rates.
PFC is a means of providing compensation locally to reduce this excess power draw which can result in electricity bill savings, reduced system losses and optimal utilization of energy resources and transformer capacity.
