GRIDCON ® PFC (power factor correction) reactive-power compensation systems are used everywhere that motors are still directly operated without power electronics, or other consumers with a low inductive cosφ place strain on the grid with reactive power in addition to their active-power requirements. Local supply of this reactive power by means of compensation systems relieves the burden on the supply grid and reduces losses.
Funktion and customer benefits
- Reducing operating costs:
GRIDCON® PFC switches power capacitors on the grid as needed, thus preventing additional electricity costs for the supply of reactive power.
- Reducing investment costs:
The modular design makes it possible to start out with a smaller system and, if necessary, expand the system by adding further modules later on.
- Maximizing equipment utilization:
GRIDCON® PFC reduces the burden on transformers by providing the required reactive power locally, so that more consumers can be supplied by the same transformer.
