Power Factor Services Ltd.

Power Factor Improvement

Is your company’s power system experiencing penalties associated with a low power factor? Your company could be losing in excess of hundreds to thousands of dollars a month in costs & penalties associated with a low power factor. Beyond the immediate cash costs associated with a low power factor, there are the environmental impacts of operating an inefficient power system. The carbon footprint of your company’s operations could drastically be reduced by simply implementing a power factor correction solution, reducing your company’s strain on the electricity grid & simultaneously saving your company money. Transmission companies use high voltage capacitors on a daily basis to increase suppl voltage by reducing loading on their transmission lines.

Power Factor Correction Solutions

Power Factor Services Ltd. offers complete power factor correction of your company’s power system. The power factor correction process typically starts with a site visit, where a power factor correction expert will examine and audit your company’s existing power system. Once we collect the required data, we create a site evaluation report which identifies any possible lags, losses or strains that could be affecting your power system. Depending on the size, scope and application of your power system, the site evaluation report can take anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks to produce. The site evaluation report calculates your power system’s current power factor, and based on your current electric utility provider:

  • Identifies the amount of savings can be achieved through power factor correction;
  • Suggests the appropriate power factor correction solutions to achieve the recommended power factor, as well as the costs associated with these power factor improvements; &
  • Calculates the payback time for the recommended power factor improvements. This can be as little as 1 to 2 years, depending on the scope of the changes.

Power factor correction solutions can take a number of forms, ranging from capacitor maintenance or capacitor repair, to installing harmonic filters or implementing an electrical power monitoring system. Each company’s power system is unique, which means that every power factor correction solution that we suggest is custom crafted to meet your company’s power needs.
