Poor Power Quality – Causes & Solutions for Low Power Factor

Poor power quality – Causes and solutions for low power factor

Industrial processes rely on powerful motors that are controlled by variable speed drives – but these often have a low power factor that leads to loss of efficiency in production. This video explains the concept of power factor and how a low power factor will reduce the capacity of the electrical system and lead to equipment malfunction and higher utility bills. It then explains how power factor correction equipment includes passive capacitor bands, power electronic compensators, static var compensators and software-based volt var management systems.
