GRIDCON® PFC

Actively reducing electricity costs with passive systems.

Your benefits
at a glance:

  • Needs-based expansion and simple service possible thanks to the modular design
  • High power densities of up to 500 kvar per cabinet (WxDxH) 800 x 600 x 2000 mm
  • Short delivery times for standard systems with 7% or 14% choking
  • Variants available for capacitive and inductive reactive-power compensation
  • Combinations of protective and fast Thyristor-switched levels possible
 

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.
