Power Factor Correction Modules

50Hz. Power factor correction modules are the solution fully tested for panel builders

Power Factor Correction Modules
  • Features

    When is power factor correction used?

    Power factor correction improves power quality and availability by helping to optimize power consumption, and to compensate for voltage drops and other transient supply cuts that negatively impact process functioning.

    Power factor correction increases the power factor of a load, improving efficiency for the distribution system. Linear loads with low power factor can be corrected with a passive network of capacitors or inductors. Non-linear loads require active or passive power factor correction to counteract the distortion and raise the power factor.

    Power factor correction can be undertaken at a central substation, spread out over a distribution system, or built into power-consuming equipment.

    Power factor correction modules are the solution fully tested for panel builders. It is a prewired subassembly designed to put in power factor correction cubicles, either stand alone or inside a Main Low Voltage Switchboard. It is available with or without integrated busbar for the different electrical distribution types of network: Comfort and Harmony.
