Switchboard loading can change and harmonics can be introduced that can harm the capacitors and raise the danger of fire. ESL designs and manufactures power factor correction panels base on surveys and harmonic studies to determine the suitability of your existing PFC equipment or we can provide you with new purpose-built equipment designed for your installation.
We have carried out a number of PFC replacement sections where we have designed a section to match the existing busbar system and seamlessly replaced a redundant section including busbars, door interlocked isolator, controller, contactors, fuses, capacitors, indication, detuning reactors, and thermal management. We can also provide free-standing PFC panels incorporating as many capacitors as required.
Power Factor Correction equipment can be of a great benefit but can cause major problems if they are not designed, executed and maintained correctly.
