Power Factor Correction Controllers
Alpha Power Solutions offers intelligent Power Factor Controllers to track capacitor usage. A Power Factor Correction Controller can save electricity costs.
Our units track the number of times each capacitor bank is switched as well as the total duration each capacitor bank has been energized. This information is used to determine which bank will be energized or de-energized and this results in an even wear of the complete power factor correction installation. The following information is displayed by the controller:
- Power Factor
- Active Power
- Reactive Power
- Apparent Power
- Total harmonic distortion
- PFC cabinet ambient temperature
- Automatic starting of cooling fans at a PFC cabinet ambient temperature of 35°C
- Automatic deactivation of capacitor steps at a PFC cabinet ambient temperature of 50°C
We offer clients the option to choose between manual and automatic operation with intelligent digital visualisation of activated capacitor steps.
