What are they?

AVC plus Power Factor Correction benefits:

  • Reduce DOWNTIME
  • Reduce/ Eliminate voltage/amperage fluctuation events wearing all computer components
  • Reduce/ Eliminate voltage/amperage fluctuation events wearing all drives, PLC’s, and control equipment.
  • Lower Maintenance and replacement parts cost
  • Lower Peak Demand from Utility Provider (Keep in line kW vs. kVA ratio)
  • Create more electrical distribution capacity in your power distribution system

A Voltage Correction System with Power Factor Correction built into it will provide an incredible amount of benefits to your facility beyond satisfying the Utility Provider requirements.

While correcting power factor with an AVC you can also stabilize your power internally to your facility and create many additional benefits along the way.

When you install equipment that will correct power and hold voltage, you can also accommodate power factor issues. Halting wear and tear on other equipment in the facility by having stable voltage and power factor is the goal. The long term positives are lowered operations and maintenance costs by limiting voltage and amperage anomalies inside the facility.

Where do I install Power Factor Correction?

It is common to correct power factor and voltage at the incoming service entrance. It is also common to install smaller systems at the point of equipment use. Systems may also be installed at power distribution points within the facility.

Have an ICP site survey done to survey your facility and install a power metering device.

When you install equipment that will correct power and hold voltage within your facility, you will be providing your facility with protection against all outside influences of power. Halting wear and tear on other equipment in the facility by having stable voltage and power factor is the goal. The long term positives are lowered operations and maintenance costs by limiting voltage and amperage anomalies inside the facility. It is common to vet these issues by installing a monitoring device at the service entrance of the facility utility power. This is a low-cost method to really understand these issues and to make a proper diagnosis.

We are available to review electrical one-lines, Power Reports, Demand Usage, and any other data on your facility power.
