POWER FACTOR CORRECTION-PRODUCTS & SOLUTIONS

VarPlus Can are low voltage aluminium can capacitors specially designed to deliver a long working life with low losses in standard, heavy-duty and severe operating conditions.

  •  Technical datas:
      - High life expectancy up to 160,000 hours
      - Voltage up to 830 V
      - Power ratings up to 50 kvar
      - Operating temperature up to 70 °C
      - Degree of protection IP20
      - Compliant with standards IEC 60831-1 and -2.

VarPlus Can capacitors must be selected depending on the working conditions expected during their lifetime. Since the harmonics are caused by non-linear loads, an indicator for the magnitude of harmonics is the ratio NLL of the total power of non-linear loads to the power supply transformer rating.

POWER FACTOR CORRECTION-PRODUCTS & SOLUTIONS

Reactors have to be associated to capacitor banks for Power Factor Correction in systems with significant non-linear loads, generating harmonics.

Capacitors and reactors are configured in a series resonant circuit & the configuration is usually called "Detuned Capacitor Bank", and the reactors referred as "Detuned Reactors".

The use of detuned reactors thus prevents harmonic resonance problems, avoids the risk of overloading the capacitors and contributes to reducing voltage harmonic distortion in the network
