Evolution of Power Factor Correction in Low-Voltage Distribution Networks

Electrical engineers must concern themselves with power quality issues in buildings and electrical systems. Learn how to mitigate power quality issues in this webcast

Original air date September 30, 2021
Electrical engineers should understand what power factor correction is, why engineers should correct power factor, the evolution from power factor to true power factor and various power factor correction techniques. The presenter will also examine applications that involve power factor correction in harmonic-rich networks and how it can be used to mitigate flicker. The discussion will conclude by looking at the future of power factor correction by exploring electronic VAR compensation.
