APPLICATION-Automatic Capacitor Banks are commonly used to improve Power Factor of entire facilities or for multiple inductive loads. Automatic Capacitor Banks monitor the reactive power demanded by loads and incrementally switch the proper amount of capacitance as required. Where non-linear loads are present use either an Automatic Power Factor Capacitor system with de-tuned reactors to reduce the flow of harmonic currents in capacitors and to prevent harmonic resonance.
Type CAB Automatic Capacitor Systems
Arteche Type CAB Automatic Power Factor Capacitor Systems automatically adjust the connected capacitor kVAR to the system needs based on commands from the internal electronic power factor controller.
The total bank of capacitors is segmented into convenient increments of kVAR which are switched on-line as needed. Automatic capacitor systems can be supplied either with or without a main circuit breaker or switch. For applications that have harmonic producing loads, automatic capacitor systems can be supplied with an optional detuning reactor to reduce the flow of harmonic currents in capacitors.
PF CAPACITORS AND HARMONICS-Capacitors can become overloaded or cause harmonic resonance and fail prematurely when they share a power system with harmonic producing loads.
Type FAB Detuned Capacitor Systems
Arteche offers "Detuned" automatic capacitors that incorporate a harmonic blocking reactor in each individual capacitor step to prevent harmonic currents from damaging the capacitor.
Arteche offers both standard and custom capacitor systems.
