Keywords:application note? power factor correction? optimized PFC design?

Although the topics covered in this application note reflect the major points required for the safe usage of PFC capacitors from EPCOS in industrial applicationsthey do not claim to be complete. Other conditions such as the exposed locations of wind turbines involving a higher risk of lightning strikes, overvoltage, phase opposition as well as isolated operation and audio remote frequencies must also be taken into account.

A customized specification is mandatory for an optimized design of PFC systems. It must include aspects such as location, application, surroundings and power stability. The particular components should be perfectly matched to each other. Principles of good engineering practice must not be ignoredsometimes a simple design is much better than an overly elaborate one.
