Contactor based APFC Panels

The MSEDCL is installing the digital energy meter for industrial consumers having load 20 HP and above, which has the provision of showing the PF and insisting to maintain the average power factor above 0.90 for LT and HT consumers.

For maintaining the power factor according to the load factor, proper capacity of capacitors is to be connected. The value of capacitors to be connected will vary with respect to load and its existing PF. There are two ways to maintain PF-

1) Fixing of capacitor at the load end permanently or at the mains. Generally which is recommended for the fixed load like pumps, fans etc. and it is not possible for the load which has variations in the load and PF.

2) The power factor can be maintained by installing Automatic Power Factor Control Panel (APFC Panel)

Alfa Power Solution Automatic Power Factor Control Panel

APFC Panel has microcontroller based programmable controller which switches the capacitor banks of suitable capacity automatically in multiple stages by directly reading the reactive load (RKVA) which works in the principle of VAR sensing tends to maintain the PF to 0.99 Lag. The capacitor banks may be selected in number of stages as 4/6/8 according to the load pattern.

Install APFC Panel to avoid penalties and enjoy the benefits automatically.

APFC or Automatic Power Factor Control Panels are mainly used for the improvement of Power Factor. Power Factor can be explained as ratio of active power to apparent power and it is a key factor in measuring electrical consumption. Everyone knows that how costly electricity has become in present time. Therefore it becomes utmost important to cut down on electrical consumption for reducing expenditure.

APFC Panels come real handy in the achievement of this purpose Use of these control panels becomes indispensable in those industries where electrical installations are meant to supply to large electrical load.

A dip in Power Factor can attract operational losses and a penalty from electricity board, responsible for electricity supply.

We offer vide range of standard and customized APFC panels and are competitive in the industry.

With an APFC the energy producer can:

• Avoid Penalization for lower power factor.
• Enjoy incentives for higher power factor operation being extended to Industries by some   Electricity Boards/ Companies.
• Optimize the connected load for improved plant load factor.
• Avoid manual disruption.
• Avoid high current consumption losses.
• Improvement in voltage regulation.
• Decrease Maximum Demand KVA, thus avoiding penalty and Demand Charges.
