Effects of Harmonics for power factor correction Capacitor Banks

Do the harmonics in your distribution system is a potential threat for your capacitor bank? Yes. When a capacitor bank is installed in a harmonic rich environment, they create a low impedance path and magnify the magnitude of current and voltage harmonics in a system resulting in parallel resonant effect. With this resonant phenomena, the […]

Capacitor Banks Do Need Maintenance

There is a norm that since capacitor banks are static type electrical equipment, regular maintenance is not required. But capacitors need to be monitored and maintained regularly. The unawareness and the negligence of the users may leads to reduce the life expectancy or failures of the capacitors which would cause an ultimate loss for your […]
