LV Fix Power Factor Correction Systems

Fix power factor correction is used typically for wattless equipment, and characterized by a constant reactive power requirement. In these cases, power factor is corrected locally, with a suitably sized fixed phase plug and installed in the user’s proximity. Typical cases are the power factor correction of asynchronous motors and of load losses of the MV / LV transformers.

Icar offers the following fix power factor correction solutions:

  • SUPERriphaso (power factor correction modular plastic case)
  • CRTE (three-phase cylindrical capacitors)
  • RIPHASO (power factor correction in metal housing)
  • Microfix (metallic case with switch and fuses)

In case of demand for fix high power factor correction (> 50kvar) or with special characteristics, ICAR realizes customized solutions
