PFC Calculator a silver lining in the current energy crises
The PFC calculator provides South African businesses with some positivity. A specifically formulated calculation to determine how much you can save.
The current power supply is uncertain and unpredictable. Load shedding continues with only a few hours’ notice, and it moves from level 2 to 4 within minutes.
How can a business operate when precious hours are lost? When will we see the light at the end of a very dark tunnel?
IOL reported, “if the load shedding forecast is anything to go by, it is worth investing (if possible) in alternative sources of power to get you through load shedding.”
Many options provided, are helpful and affordable for home users, but what options are available for businesses? When you have to utilise large amounts of power to remain operational, who can you turn to?

We recently assisted a successful brick-making company in Gauteng, overloading their supply transformer and looking for a cost-effective solution. By installing a well-designed PFC system, we were able to improve the plant’s power factor from 0.58 to 0.99 and, in so doing, reduced their maximum demand by 40%.
The installation resulted in the below positive results to the business,
- The transformer no longer being overloaded but also improved the low voltage conditions they were experiencing.
- The client was able to add additional electrical equipment onto this transformer without having to incur the cost of a significant infrastructure upgrade.
