    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:

    • VARPLUS LV Capacitors – To meet all Technology & Duty requirements
    • MV Capacitors & Banks/Projects
    • LV/MV APFC Systems
    • Harmonic Filters – Tuned, DeTuned , Broadband , Active Filter
    • PF Relays
    • Services – Auditing , Training , Consultancy

    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.

     

    LV Components:

    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) :

    Voltage range: 440V/480V/525V, 50Hz (Other Ratings on Request)
    Power range: Up to 25kvar (40 and 50kvar on request)

    VarplusBox (Metal Box)

     

    Voltage range: 440V/480V/525V, 50Hz (Other Ratings on Request)
    Power range: Up to 100kvar

    The Duties offered viz Standard Duty, Heavy Duty, Energy (MDXL), APP, Gas Filled, cover all possible Application requirements.

     

    Detuned Reactors:

     

    Reactors have to be associated to capacitor banks for Power Factor Correction in systems with significant non-linear loads, generating harmonics.

    Capacitors and reactors are configured in a series resonant circuit & the configuration is usually called "Detuned Capacitor Bank", and the reactors referred as "Detuned Reactors".

    The use of detuned reactors thus prevents harmonic resonance problems, avoids the risk of overloading the capacitors and contributes to reducing voltage harmonic distortion in the network.
