Introduction
There is large number of feeders running from
substation to the load in distribution networks. The line
current varies heavily during the day. The nature of load
is unpredictable as large number of small loads is
connected in the distribution network. It affects the
power factor adversely. The power factor
improvement at the load end for medium and large
scale industries can be governed. Domestic users,
which are the majority, it is difficult to estimate cost to
benefit advantage and thus it is difficult to maintain
power factor on their respective premises. Hence
switched capacitors prove beneficial for such loads.
Advantages of improving power factor by using
capacitors:
i. Reduction in kVAdemand on transformer
ii. Transformer load current is reduced
iii. Energy savings
iv. Better voltage regulation for consumers and
motor overheating prevented
This scheme of capacitor switching is load current
dependant. When the load current falls the capacitor is
switched OFF and when the load current rises above
the set value the capacitor is switched ON in order to
reduce the feeder current and improve the voltage
profile of the line. The controller does this function. This
controller is developed by CG looking at the optimum
use of capacitor bank in the line.
