on video Automatic Power Factor Controller Installation! Reactive Power Controller Working and Connection!


In today's complex energy world, the reactive load in the power grid is constantly increasing. The increase in the power of transformers, transmission lines and generators leads to an increase in reactive power. The control of reactive power load has become a necessity, and the power factor controller plays an important role in the reactive power correction system.
Before understanding the controller, you should understand what reactive power is.

Many loads require reactive power to provide magnetizing current for motors, power transformers, electric welders, arc furnaces, inductors, and lighting ballasts. It is not a useful force and should be controlled. Obviously, utilities must generate, transmit, and distribute active and reactive power. However, if reactive power can come from other sources, utility companies can produce cleaner energy.

At this point, in order to automatically control reactive power, we need capacitor banks and power factor controllers. The power factor controller is a complicated device, but the function I will explain to you is as simple as that. First, let's start with the definition.

1. What is a power factor controller?
The power factor controller (PFC) is the control unit of the automatic capacitor bank system. It performs the switching of capacitors to achieve the user-defined target cosɸ. By integrating a power factor controller, it is possible to optimize the process, speed up troubleshooting and reduce the cost of the supervisory system.
