Capacitor Banks

Capacitor Banks improve the power factor by adding capacitive reactance in steps as per the power factor requirement.

Power factor controller constantly monitors the load (and power factor) of the system on LV Panel and switch on/ off the capacitor steps to maintain the system power factor to the set value. It provides optimum power factor improvement to compensate for lagging Vars in the system, seen as a clean and reliable solution to providing quality power to the distribution network and to economize the electricity charge to customer/consumer.
