APFC Panel is called as automatic power factor control panel . It is often set up with Main Switch Board Panel ( MSB Panel) or Low Power Panel. It can be set up individually, depend on its designing. Besides, it can directly set up in some location of consumption load.
APFC Panel is compensation again the losses of reactive power (Capacitor), is lost during transmission and distribution (Inductor).
The purpose of low voltage capacitor Panel:
- About economy: Reduce the cost of electricity.( We don’t pay fine for reactive power)
- About technology: Reduce voltage drop, reduce power loss, reduce the size of wire and increase load capacity.
- Power factor: Pf = Cosθ = P(kW)/ S(kVA), tagθ = Q(kVAr)/ P(kW)
- Compensation capacity: Qc (kVAr)= P(kW) x (tgθ2 – tgθ1)
- Result: Qc (kVAr)= 0.4 x P(kW)
Calculate the net capacity after compensation
- System operation: Un, fn
- Capacitor parameter: Uc, fc, Qc
- Result: Qc’ = (fn/fc) x (Un/Uc)² x Qc
Calculation of C/ K index:
- Parameters of step 1: Qc1
- Transformer current ratio: In/ 5A= Ict
- Result: C/K = Qc1/ Ict
