Power Factor Correction

Deregulation of utilities and increasing electrical demands on power distribution systems have increased the incidence of power factor penalties. More and more, utilities are requiring that all power consumers operate efficiently and imposing substantial power factor penalties. The penalties from the utility can have a big impact on your bottom line profitability.

Coordinated Power Engineering (CPE) will determine the cause of poor power factor and provide design recommendations to correct the problem. CPE will provide monitoring services to determine the power factor values, analyze the system to determine the offending loads, and provide solutions such as size and economical placement of power factor correction banks. The goal is to save you money. Power factor correction will not only improve power system operating performance and efficiency, but also generate significant savings on the utility bill. Power factor penalties are often so substantial that the payback period for power correct equipment is short.
