Aerovox Corp. has published a Savings and Application Guide for Power Factor Correction and Harmonic Solutions. The comprehensive application note covers power factor analysis, benefits in use, and guidance for calculating, specifying and applying power factor correction capacitors.

Properly sized and applied power factor correction capacitors in industrial applications will increase system power factor. Their application will reduce utility costs associated with poor power factor, reduce the effects of potentially damaging harmonics, reduce system losses and release system capacity.

“Integration of power factor correction capacitors can result in significant utility bill savings. It can also relieve overloaded distribution systems to increase efficiency and free up capacity for additional load. Cost avoidance can be significant,” said Jim Faughnan, President & CEO. “Our application note is a useful resource for engineers who need an economical solution to improving power quality to AC electric power systems.”
