High Speed Real Time Automatic Power Factor Correction System
State-of-art electronic switching device designed to replace electro-mechanically switched equipment, in power factor correction systems
Smooth and Transient free
Connection and disconnection of the capacitor to and from the network occurs at zero current crossing. This smooth connection avoids the transient effects like waveform distortions, generation of switching spikes etc., typically created by electro-mechanically switched Power Factor Correction ( PFC ) systems. The total correction time (Full compensation of reactive current) is only 3 to 4 cycles which is much faster than electro-mechanically switched PFC systems
The systems is maintenance free because it does not use contactor for switching the capacitors.
Capacitors life is enhanced to minimum three times of normal life due to smooth connection and disconnection.
The detuned reactors prevent resonance by shifting the capacitor / network resonance frequency.
