What is poor power factor?
Are you getting a hefty bill for the kVA usage of your facility? The reactive power charge from your electricity provider is a penalty you pay for poor power factor within your network.
These charges occur when the power factor of a building falls below a certain level. Each electricity supplier will typically define their own level.
Usually, power factor is affected by inductive loads. In short, if you have poor power factor, you’re paying for electricity that’s not doing any work. This is because you need to pull more power from the electricity network to get the same work done.
The larger your facility, the bigger the penalty charge will be for bad power factor. This is because your bad power factor reduces the electricity supplier’s distribution capacity.
