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


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.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn about power factor correction and its benefits.
  • Review and understand various low-voltage power factor correction techniques.
  • Learn to apply power factor correction in complex applications.
  • Understand how electronic VAR compensator can be used to correct power factor.
