Power Factor Correction
Power factor correction (PFC) is a newer technology used in computer power supplies. PFC is applied to the circuits that include induction motors as a means of reducing the inductive component of the current and thereby reduce the losses in the supply. PFC has no effect on the operation of the motor itself.
Power factor is the ratio between KW and the KVA drawn by and electrical load where the KW is the actual load power and the KVA is the apparent load power. Simply it is measure of how efficiently the load current is being conv
erted into useful work output and more particularly is a good indicator of the effect of the load current on the efficiency of the supply system.
Before offering a solution to our customers, Mark Arnold Electrical Engineering takes the necessary electrical measurements of your network.
This allows us to better understand your power consumption and power factor constraints and ensures that our offer is based on sound and accurate information. We also consider physical constraints when submitting a proposal.
We minimize downtime incurred as a result of the installation of our equipment, through careful planning and consultation with our customers. After the required hardware is installed, you will notice an immediate improvement in power factor, a more efficient use of your available electrical power and of course monthly savings in your electricity bills.
