Power Factor Correction Training System



The Power Factor Correction Training System familiarizes the student with the reasons for correcting the power factor in industrial applications, as well as with the different means to do so. The training system begins by discussing the problematic of having a low power factor in industrial applications, for both the electrical power provider and the customer. It then covers how power factor correction is usually implemented in industrial applications with variable inductive loads (e.g., induction motors that start and stop). The training system also introduces students to the two main types of power factor correction available: plant-wide and distributed. Finally, the principles of power factor correction are applied to both single-phase and three-phase ac power circuits.
