What is a Power Factor correction unit?

20 March 2013

power factor correction unit 1Power factor correction units (or PFC Units) consist of capacitors which act as reactive current generators. By providing the reactive power, they reduce the total amount of power you must draw from the network. The dynamic PFC automatically and safely compensates for changing load and helping the business avoid PF charge penalties.

The wrong capacitor for the job is possibly worse than none at all so should be a professional job, not DIY.
