Power Factor and Harmonics

Low power factor and harmonics are a frustration for electrical installations. They can cause power losses and reduced energy reliability. In the context of increasing concern about energy efficiency and energy management, power factor and harmonics are important issues to consider for the management of electrical installations. This course will explore power factor and harmonics and will explain how power factor correction and harmonic mitigation provide immediate benefit in terms of reduced power losses, reduced electricity bill, and the possibility to use the total system capacity.
