Littelfuse Startco Power Factor Correction Systems have many advantages over installation of individual capacitors, including:
- They greatly reduce installation cost over installation of many small capacitors.
- Switched capacitor steps are closely matched to the varying power requirements and load diversification, often resulting in a lower total of capacitors being installed since individual loads can vary greatly.
- Any future addition to the system is simplified.
- Monitoring of power factor is simple because it can be done from a central location.
Littelfuse Startco can supply power factor correction systems for industrial plants and for underground mining operations. Units feature detuned switched and capacitor banks up to 5 MVAR and 15 kV.
