Power Factor Correction equipment is an important part of many businesses’ electrical infrastructure, and ensures they are complying with current regulations and utilising their power as efficiently as possible.
It is usually found connected to the main incoming LV supply and reacts automatically to load fluctuations, reducing demand and ensuring no penalties are attracted for operating an inefficient electrical supply.
It is therefore important to regularly maintain your Power Factor Correction equipment to ensure you are maximising the benefits.
As with any piece of electrical equipment components will fail from time to time but as Power Factor Correction capacitors store energy it is vital regular checks are carried out to ensure the safe operation of the equipment.
A typical Power Factor for a site benefitting from Power Factor Correction equipment would be between 0.95 – 0.99 (95-99% efficient). However, it is not unusual to come across a Power Factor much lower than this due to underperforming Power Factor Correction equipment, as a result of component failure or capacitor deterioration.
