THE SOLUTION

NEEDING A POWER FACTOR SOLUTION?

Eliminate fines for reactive power surplus 

Although inductive reactive power is essential for the operation of various types of equipment, such as motors, transformers, furnaces, among others categorized as inductive loads, its uses should be reduced to the minimum possible, as its high use results in a low power factor and it ends up generating fines, which occurs when the power factor reference, inductive or capacitive, presents a value lower than 0.92, according to Aneel resolution nº 456/2000 (new Aneel resolution 414/2010). 
Somatec Blocking works with capacitor banks for power factor correction with the expertise necessary for its electrical installation to present a value equal to or greater than 0.92 in relation to the power factor reference, completely eliminating the fine for reactive power excess.

OTHER LOSSES CAUSED BY SURPLUS REACTIVE ENERGY

Reactive power disturbs the transport and the use of active power, which can cause a low power factor fine. In addition to these losses, there are others:
- Losses in the electrical network generating overheating and voltage drop;
- Underutilization of installed capacity;
- Need for oversizing conductors to carry the same active power;
- Need for oversizing transformers with greater capacity to supply the same active power;
- Need for oversizing operation and protection devices.

With the correction of the power factor and the solution to these problems, there is a better use of active energy and a reduction in costs with the electrical network structuring.
