| How efficient are you in powering your plant?
Did you know that the electrical power your facility receives is made up of two components: real power
and reactive power.
While real power performs useful work within your facility, reactive power does not. In fact, reactive power actually constitutes an energy loss and can consume capacity in transformers, generators, wiring, and transmission lines.
Power factor, a measure of electrical efficiency, compares the amount of real, or useful, power to the total power consumed. If power factor is not 100%, your facility is not operating at its highest efficiency and is probably paying penalty fees to utilities
who charge for poor efficiency.
| Learn how you to improve your electrical efficiency from our panel of experts
who will discuss:
• The relationship between power factor and electrical efficiency
• Power factor measurement and
• Power factor correction issues
