Reduction of energy consumption CO2 emissions savings Improvement of power quality

Energy Efficiency: a common concern!
As electricity is the major contributor to greenhouse gases, Energy Efficiency is now a common concern for of all actors in the market. Reduce electricity consumption and costs and improve power quality and availability are now growing demands, more particularly due to: ● the commitment of many industrialised countries to reduce their collective emissions of greenhouse gases as well as the implementation of local regulations and incentive schemes ● the increasing use of electronic devices leading to power quality issues and energy consumption rise

Energy Efficiency thanks to power factor correction
Implementing power factor correction and harmonic filtering solutions enable to: ● reduce your electricity bill ● increase available power ● reduce the impacts of harmonics Moreover, energy savings produced by power factor correction help protecting the environment by reducing CO2 emissions related to power generation.

Achieve more with a successful optimization
There are three steps for a successful optimization of your installation: ● measure and/or gather the electrical network data ● understand, establish diagnostic and decide the corrective action to be taken ● act, clean up, correct power factor, install backup networks In any case, the most important factor is to correct and monitor over time the effectiveness of the solution.

This transfer of energy between the loads and the source (fig.98 Q ϕ P cos ϕ = P / S S Q ϕ P cos ϕ = P / S S Q j P cos j = P/S Fig. etc. The cosine φ therefore indicates the ratio between the active and apparent power of the installation (the maximum number of kVA that it can use). 1) causes voltage losses and drops in conductors and therefore consumption of extra energy that cannot be directly used by loads. ● Reactive energy Some loads require magnetic fields to operate (motors.78 I V I PM PM Power factor (Cosine φ) The presence of inductive loads in an installation causes a phase shift between the current wave and the voltage. The same ratio exists between the active and reactive energies or powers. That is why cosine φ indicates the «electrical efficiency» of an installation (fig.The basis The nature of energy ● Active energy All electrical devices powered by AC current convert the electrical energy supplied into mechanical work and heat. 3: cosine φ as a representation of the electrical efficiency of an installation P. Fig. transformers.) and consume another type of energy called reactive energy. The instantaneous power of an installation consists of two components: the oscillating power whose frequency is twice the fundamental frequency and the average power (Pm = VI cos φ). which represents the output or active power of the installation and which is constant. This can be explained as follows: these loads (called inductive loads) absorb energy from the network when the magnetic fields required to operate them are generated and they discharge it when these fields are destroyed. The angle φ represents this phase shift and gives the ratio between the reactive current (inductive) of an installation and its active current. 2a: power flow in an installation where P cosine φ = 0.

Calculation for an electrical installation
General method

From the data supplied by the manufacturers of the various loads, such as the active power, load factor, cos φ, etc. and if the simultaneity factor of each load in the installation is known, the levels of the active and reactive power consumed throughout the installation can be determined.

Simplified method

A simplified method of calculating the power factor correction requirements of an installation can be used provided that the following data is known: ○ the initial average cos φ, ○ the cos φ required, ○ the average active power of the installation. This data can be obtained: ○ by calculation, as indicated for the general method ○ by estimation, according to the installed power They are used to perform the calculation with the help of the table.

Calculation using the table
● Example: Calculation of the reactive power required to compensate the following installation: ○ P = 500 kW, ○ initial cos φ = 0.75, ○ cos φ required = 0.98. From the table on the next page, we obtain a factor = 0.679. Multiplying this factor by the active power of the installation (500 kW) gives the reactive power to be installed: Q = 500 x 0.679 = 340 kVAr

Reactive energy correction in an electrical installation

Where should the capacitors be installed?
The location of the capacitors in an electrical network is determined according to: ○ the required objective: eliminate penalties, discharge lines and transformers, increase end-of-line voltage, ○ the method of electrical power distribution, ○ the load rating, ○ the estimated effect of the capacitors on the network, ○ the cost of the installation. The reactive energy compensation can be: ○ a high-voltage capacitor bank on the high-voltage distribution network (1), ○ a medium-voltage capacitor bank, regulated or fixed for the medium-voltage subscriber (2), ○ a low-voltage capacitor bank, regulated or fixed for the low-voltage subscriber (3), ○ fixed power factor correction for a medium-voltage motor (4), ○ fixed power factor correction for a low-voltage motor (5). Example: Customers can choose the location of the power factor correction devices according to the characteristics of their installation and the objectives they require it to meet. Type 2 equipment can, for example, be used to compensate the consumption of the lift station on a wind turbine farm; another example is to compensate a motor control centre, for which automatic equipment is recommended. Type 1 equipment can be used to compensate the power transport line of an electrical company.

Harmonic filtering solutions Presentation p. 79 .

reduces voltage distortion ● Hybrid filter It is made up of a passive filter combined with an active filter in the same cubicle. in turn. they are designed to absorb harmonic currents at a particular frequency. Three types of solutions are available: ● Passive filter It is made up of detuned reactors and capacitors tuned on the harmonic frequency of the order to be suppressed. A passive filter enables to: ○ correct the power factor ○ benefit from a high capacity of filtering ● Active filter An active filter cancels harmonics by dynamically injecting out of phase harmonic current. In other words.79 . It reduces current distortion that. In case of more than one order to eliminate. several unit can be associated. Harmonic filtering solutions comply with IEC 604-39 standard. 400 V three phase 5th to 11th from 100 kvar to 350 kvar ● Active filter Network voltage Harmonic order cancelled Power ratings from 208 to 480 V three-phase from 2nd to 50th up to 300 A per unit Expandable capabilities : parallel up to 10 units with different ratings on one set of current transformer ● Hybrid filter Network voltage Passive filter Active filter Reactive power Harmonic order treated 400 V three phase 5th order from 20 A up to 350 kvar (other power on request) 2nd to 25th P.
