T-Type PFC Installation

A medium sized coatings factory in Hertfordshire required some help reducing the reactive charges there were receiving on there electricity bills, so following a desktop review of their monthly charges it was determined that a 4 stage 50kVAr Power Factor Correction unit would be needed.

Installed on the Main LV Switchboard via a 100A MCCB the wall mounted T-Type unit consists of 4 stages of 13.5kVAr capacitors each switched by a IMO MC18 soft switching contactors all controlled by a Lovato DCRL 5 digital control relay.

A 4” 230V filter fan was also installed to help vent excess heat from inside the unit.
