Power Factor Control Reactive Energy Compensation is described as another way to manage reactive power to improve the performance of alternative-current (AC) power supply.
Generally, the issue of reactive power compensation is linked to the load and voltage support. In the load support the objective is to increase the value of the system power factor, to balance the real power drawn from the AC supply. Furthermore, it enhances the stability of the AC supply by increasing the maximum active power transmitted.
What’s the objective ?
- In the load support, it helps to increase the value of the power factor, in order to balance the real power drawn from the AC supply to enhance the voltage regulation and eliminate the existing components produced by huge and sudden surge of industrial loads.
- In the voltage support, it helps to reduce the fluctuation of the voltage at the terminal of the transmission line.
