Methods of the power factor correction
Posted 27 September 2002 - 02:05 PM
I would like to know how can I correct the power factor.
Now, I would like to detect the power factor everytime. If the power factor is below 0.85, the device will correct it automatically.
How can I do??Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum
Firstly, have a look at http://www.lmphotonics.com/pwrfact.htm and this may asnwer some of your questions.
There are two ways of applying power factor correction, one method is known as static correction where the correct correction is hard wired to each load, so that when it is diconnected, the correcion is disconnected also, and the other way is automatic or bulk correction. With bulk correction, the correction is aplied at the main switchboard or submain, and an automatic relay is used to control the amount of correction applied. There are many such relays available. If you need further information, I am sure that we can help.
