Reactive power is that necessary for the functioning of certain devices, such as motors and transformers.
Reactive power moves through the grid, causing an increase in electrical current demand. This creates adverse effects such as the loss of useful capacity in installations, lower output in connected electrical devices, and even voltage losses and disruptions in the electrical grid.
The reactive power can be eliminated through the installation of capacitor banks. This compensates for part of the reactive power of components with coiled components, such as motors or transformers.
¿How to save on reactive power?
Install capacitor banks to avoid reactive power penalties. These banks facilitate stabilization and quality of the supply. They also optimize the sizing and output of electrical installations. The useless energy demanded from the supply grid is thus decreased or even eliminated, and as a result, capacity is improved.
Capacitor banks can provide savings of up to 30% depending on the case. This allows for a quick depreciation on the investment (banks cost around 600, have a long useful life and require almost no maintenance).
With capacitor banks installed in your business, you will pay 0% in reactive power. You will only pay for energy that is useful or consumed.
