Reactive & Capacitive Power is the power the electricity supplier must generate and supply for inductive & capactive loads to energise. This is non-working (Real) power that is drawn from the grid that electricity companies must supply but cannot charge for without the issuing of Reactive/Capactive Power charges.
Installing power factor correction equipment will reduce energy usage and lower electricity bills.
Typical return on investment is around 2-5 years, dependent upon the size of the power factor system required and the amount of charges. Once installed and with regular maintenance, a PFC system should operate for 15 years or more before it may require a complete replacement.
By installing additional equipment in your circuits that contain reactive loads (such as motors etc), we can minimise these power losses.
Typically, capacitors and other devices are added, resulting in a much smaller "lag" between the voltage across the equipment and the current running through it:
