Application Guide for Power Factor Correction

THE ADVANTAGES OF MAINTAINING A HIGH POWER FACTOR

ADDITIONAL CAPACITY IN ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

A high power factor can help utilize the full capacity of the electrical distribution system.  To refresh this point, refer to the power triangle diagrams shown in Figures 1, 2, and 3.  Remember, total power is the power generated by the utility provider which includes both the active power and the reactive power, and it is the active power that performs the work.  Since total power is the amount passing through the transformer, it is limited by the transformer's rated size: e.g. 750 kVA, 1500 kVA, 2500kVA, etc.  In the previous example, the transformer load was reduced from 1160 to 913 kVA, thus allowing for more load to be added in the future.
