2 INTRODUCTION Power factor (PF) is a measurement by which we can measure the efficiency of the electrical equipments as well as ac electric power system on the basis of electrical energy consumption. It determines power quality. Due to inductive loads, the apparent power becomes greater than the real power that increases the phase difference between voltage and current. So, the power factor drops below unity and the system becomes less efficient. Our project deals with correcting the power factor to make it closer to unity.

3 WHAT IS A POWER FACTOR It Is a measure of how effectively the current is being converted into useful work output It Is a good indicator of the effect of the load current on the efficiency of the supply system. Power factor = cosѲ, where ‘Ѳ’ is the phase angle power factor=P/S, where p=real power, s=apparent power.

4 Apparent power KVA KVAR Reactive power KW Real power

5 Cause of low power factor
Since power factor is defined as the ratio of KW to KVA, we see that low power factor results when KW is small in relation to KVA. Inductive loads are responsible for high KVAR resulting a low power factor. KVA KVAR KVA KVAR   KW KW So , inductive loads (with large KVAR) result in low power factor.

6 What Is Power Factor Correction?
A high power factor is generally desirable in a transmission system to reduce transmission losses . Generally power factor correction is for two type of loads :linear load, Non linear load. Power factor correction brings the power factor of an AC power circuit closer to 1 by supplying reactive power.

8 Equipments required for hardware implementation
Power Factor Transducer Power Factor Transducers measure the power Factor in 1 Phase and 3 Phase electrical systems. The resulting output signal is directly proportional to the system power factor. The output can be connected to Recorders for display, analysis or control. In our project we are using a power factor transducer of model: LTPFU.

11 CAPACITOR BANK When power factor improvement capacitor banks are designed and arranged properly, the PF correction scheme becomes efficient. The capacitor bank is comprised of individual capacitor elements. salient features of PF correction capacitor banks are extremely high reliability with self-healing capabilities; capable of controlling the requirement of kVARs to achieve PF as close as unity; compact, efficient and long service life; protected against over-voltage, over-current, over temperature, switching surges.
