FAQ

What is GSE?

Greener, Smarter Energy

What is Power Factor?

Power factor is the measure of how effectively your electrical equipment converts electric current (supplied by your power utility) into useful power output. In technical terms, for a free system harmonics, it is the ratio of Active Power (also known as Working Power and measured in watts or kilowatts (W or kW)) to the Apparent Power (measured in volt amperes or kilovolt amperes (kVA)) of an electrical installation.

For a system harmonics, grid feeding a nonlinear load, will generate a current harmonics and affects a power factor. In the apparent power a distortion power should be added to calculate a power factor.

What are the Benefits of Power Factor Correction?

Power Factor matters because it can cost your company money if limits are not respected, when your company’s power system has a low power factor, your power system is demanding significantly more power than it is actually using. This result in additional charges on your company’s electricity bill and increases the amount of energy demanded on the power grid, increasing your company’s carbon footprint. Many power utilities in the USA and Canada charge users a penalty when their power system’s power factor drops below a certain level, usually below 0.90. This power factor surcharge covers the electric utility’s cost of supplying your power system with additional reactive power.

The main benefits of Power Factor Corrections are:

  • Lower electricity bills
  • Increased system capacity (free up capacity on your supply transformer)
  • Reduced voltage drop on the supply transformer and supply cables
  • Reduced transmission losses

What are harmonics?

Harmonic are generated when using a nonlinear loads, example using a diodes rectifier to convert AC to DC, or a controlled rectifier, drives, cyclo-converters, DC supplies for computers, monitors, telephone systems, printers, scanners, and electronic lighting ballasts. The limits are also defined by the electricity distributor to not disturb other users connected to the same grid. The harmonics contents for a single phase (2k±1), for a three phase system 6 pulses rectifier diodes (6k±1) and for a three phase system 12 pulses rectifier diodes ((12k±1)  , where k is the integer varying from 1 to the maximum order of harmonics.

Effect of harmonic currents?

They generate losses, resonance and affects the electrical distribution system’s harmonic impedance to produce harmonic voltages (∆v = Zh *∑ih) at the PCC (Point Common Coupling).
