PoleCap: Power factor correction on site

Posted: 24 Jun 2008 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:application note? power factor correction? PFC? power management?

Using power factor correction (PFC) equipment in the immediate vicinity of loads can prevent grid overload. Power quality improves at the same time. PoleCaps from Epcos are the right tool for this purpose.

This pilot project and the analysis performed imposingly documented the achievements of PFC by PoleCap:

Reduction of losses

  • ? Improvement of power factor

  • ? Stabilization of power supply

    With its unique design and optimized thermal behavior, the PoleCap is not only the perfect capacitor for outdoor applications, but also under tight surrounding conditions: wherever one has to consider the presence of dust, water or UV-impact, the PoleCap will allow PFC at site.
