Power Factor Correction

CapsThe addition of Power Factor Correction equipment can result in reduced system currents and kW losses, as well as eliminating charges for excess kvar consumption. Additional capacity may be released, avoiding the expense of a supply upgrade, or peak currents can be reduced resulting in improved supply security.

Advanced RVT Controller is available with full measurement and monitoring functions including harmonic spectrum, full graphics display and optional Modbus communications adapter.

  

LV Capacitors

ABBcapsABB Capacitors offer the best technical solution to problems related to low power factor and power quality.

Improve your power quality and reduce your energy costs

ABB Capacitors are a dry type design, resulting in low losses and no risk of leakage.  Designed with self-healing properties, and incorporating a vermiculite filling for protection and safety. Each Capacitor is equipped with a Discharge Resistor, and Sequential Disconnect to remove an individual element from circuit at the end of life.

As a source of reactive power, ABB Low Voltage Capacitors provide significant improvement of power quality and reduction in energy cost by:

·       reducing or eliminating expensive utility penalties for low power factor

·       reducing power losses in cables and transformers

·       increasing power transmission capacity in cables

·       increasing available transformer capacity

·       improving voltage stabilization in long cables
