Dc Power Factor Correction
Posted 23 December 2006 - 01:45 PM
My nameís Brad, and Iíve got a question for you!
I know that PFC is a good way to balance the load of a given device, usually motorsÖ but my application is a little different.
Iím using a DC current source from lead acid cells, but I need to change the way the current flows. Is there a DC PFC module that can change my dc pushing load to a pulling load?
Let me clarify.. I know this is pretty unusual.
In DC circuits, the electron flow goes form the negative to the positive. Its pushing those electrons through the given + and Ė potentials. What I need to do is suck electrons, using the same potentials. Negative and Positive stay Negative and Positive. Would it be possible to use a capacitor bank on the positive side of my load to achieve this?

To increae the current flow, you ned to increase the EMF (like electrical pressure). This can be achieved by adding another supply i series with the existing batteries. The only other way to increase the current flow is to reduce the impednce of the circuit.

give us an idea of dimensions. Few volts and milliamps or hundred volts nd thousand amps? Solutions shall be different!
More details you will supply, more precise reply you will receive.
