Abstract:This paper presents power losses and power factor improvement of factory electrical network power plants using bank capacitors. In its operation, the electrical system always experiences losses and decreases in power factor. This condition is caused if the electrical loads are electric motors. A load of electric motors is inductive, which has a low power factor. This condition is often experienced in factories. Therefore in this study, capacitor banks are applied to reduce power losses and increase power facto… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
