Power Factor Correction | Nexus
2 x Residential Lifts and fluorescent utility lighting operating as “inductive loads” with a resultant power factor in the order of 0.72 - this is bad!
A 75 KVAr PFC unit was installed to correct the load. This resulted in a power factor of approximately 0.99 - this is really good!
Daily demand reduced by approximately 25%, with an immediate reduction in electricity costs of approximately $2,000 per year
Payback: 24 months
This is but one of several initiatives undertaken by Nexus over a 12-month period.
