LV CAPACITOR

30.06.15
SIZING

LV Capacitor Sizing:

Operating load in KW (refer load list) 1233 KW

Operating load in KVA (refer load list) 1419 KVA

Power factor 0.80

To improve power factor to near unity 1

Initial power factor cos Φ1 0.8

Final power factor cos Φ2 1

Tan Φ1 0.75

tan Φ2 0

KVAR Required: KW (Tan Φ1-tan Φ2 ) 924.75 KVAR

Thus APFC capacitor bank size selected as 925 KVAR
No. of steps-12 nos.
step-1 100
step-2 100
step-3 100
step-4 100
step-5 100
step-6 100
step-7 100
step-8 50
step-9 50
step-10 50

step-11 50
step-12 25

Heavy duty capacitor bank 925KVAR is selected.
Non linear loads
UPS 10 KVA
DC Load 1.1583 KVA
Transformer leakage reactance @4% 80 KVA
Computers 3
Lighting load(CFL) 3
VFD Load with a load factor of 0.8, since all VFD shall be loaded upto a max. of 839
Total non linear loads 936.1583 KVA
Transformer rated KVA 2000
46.80792 %
Thus total non linear loads are >30%.
Thus filters are required.
Detuned Filters at 7% of capacitor rating is considered.

Conclusion: 925KVAR Capacitor Bank with 12 steps.
Detuned Filters at 7%.
