LV Capacitor Banks

Gruppo Energia power factor correction systems help you save 25% or even more on your monthly power bills, thanks to an effective and correct compensation of the reactive power.

Reactive power is usually caused by various types of loads. If your cosϕ value is lower than 0.95, you need to pay a penalty that is added to your utility bills.

 Thanks to our industrial capacitor banks, your cosϕ is automatically modified, and this allows you to save money.

In our wide range of products, you can find the most suitable solution for your needs and your network, such as PFC capacitor banks with duty contactors or thyristor switching.

 For systems with high level of harmonic distortion, all types of capacitors panels can be equipped with harmonic filters of different detuned frequencies such as 189 Hz, 134 Hz, 210 Hz, 230 Hz, 160 Hz or 250 Hz, which correspond to P =5,67%, P=7% and P=14%.

 Thanks to the efficiency of our components, which have been designed, produced and tested in our company in Italy, you will be able to recoup the initial investment in a short time.

Moreover, our capacitor banks increase the performance of your production line, by:

  • reducing the frequency of voltage sags (which are unfavourable for the production process);
  • avoiding nuisance tripping and supply interruptions.

 

Further benefits of Gruppo Energia power factor correction systems: 

  • Saving money by paying lower utility bills;
  • Reduced demand charges thanks to the improvement of power factor;
  • Increased load carrying capabilities in existing circuits, as a consequence of the reduction of the current carried by each circuit;
  • Improved voltage thanks to the reduction of voltage drops in conductor;
  • Different type of loads can be compensated by using only one device;
  • Increased sustainability, thanks to the CO2 reduction of your power system’s demand charge.

Standards:

  • DIN EN 60439-1: 2012-06; VDE 0660-600-1: 2012-06
  • DIN EN 61921 (VDE 0560-700): 2004-02
