Improve the existing power factor in your plant.
Power factor is the ratio of real to apparent power consumed by your operations. By maintaining a high power factor, your plant can avoid costly utility bills resulting from an enforced “low” power-factor clause or high kVA demand.
Emerson Network Power power factor studies begin with a utility rate structure review and a historical sample (six to 24 months) of electric bills. This information is used to evaluate present use patterns and determine the potential economic benefits of improving power factor. Those benefits may include released power system capacity (kVA), improved bus voltage profiles and reduced power system losses.
