Schneider Electric brings a Comprehensive range of Products & Solutions to meet all Reactive Energy Management & PQ needs
Today the Power Factor Correction market is clearly identified as one of the critical elements to spread the Energy Efficiency initiative around the world. This is completely in line with the public concern about this issue, and has State backing for push on the Energy Efficiency policies in Industries, Buildings and Utilities.
Power Factor Correction (PFC) includes reactive energy management and harmonic mitigation. Reactive energy management is mainly addressed with the installation of power capacitors.
With the acquisition of Meher Capacitors, Schneider Electric brings a Comprehensive range of Products & Solutions to meet all Reactive Energy Management & PQ needs. The Range of Portfolio we now offer in India includes:
Schneider Electric offers the most complete range in loose components. Our offer includes - LV Capacitors, the detuned reactors/Capacitors, Thyristor Switches and the PF controllers.
In Electrical System, the connection of capacitors produces reactive energy needed by loads such as motors. The result is a reduced apparent power in the transmission and distribution networks, and an improved power factor. The power generation and transmission networks are then partially relieved, reducing power losses and making additional transmission capability available.
The LV capacitor Range offers two different types of construction, in terms of envelope material:
VarplusCan (Aluminium Can) :
VarplusBox (Metal Box)
The Duties offered viz Standard Duty, Heavy Duty, Energy (MDXL), APP, Gas Filled, cover all possible Application requirements.
