Power Factor Correction is the use of technology to restore power factor as close to unity as possible. This is usually achieved by the additional use of capacitors to the electrical network. Although capacitor banks help with power factor correction, they definitely leave room for improvement. Enerdoor understood this and developed a new technology, the FINSVG, which provides a better solution for power factor correction than the commonly used capacitor banks.
The Enerdoor FINSVG Static Var Generator benefits markets by saving money and energy by using power factor correction. Power Factor, or the ratio of real power to apparent power, has an ideal measurement of 1. Low power factor not only creates additional costs, it also causes unnecessary stress on equipment in the facility- which leads to premature failure.
