Power Factor Commissioning

Recently we were asked to visit an aggregates site in East London to carry out commissioning on this 300kVAr automatic, detuned Power Factor Correction Unit. Site had just had the mains LV panel upgraded along with the local Transformer.

The PFC unit was fully maintained by our engineer and the control relay settings were checked to make sure it was set up correctly. After a bit of a clean out and the tightening of a few loose terminals the unit was switched on and left operating satisfactorily.
