Aerovox designs and manufactures power factor correction capacitors for both single and three-phase applications up to 4800VAC.
These high reliability capacitors have a life rating of over 200,000 hours, and are designed to withstand harmonic rich applications.
All capacitors are vacuum impregnated, and are available in either oil-filled or dry configurations.
As well as power factor correction systems, these devices are suitable for harmonic filtering, alternative energy power systems and as alternatives for induction heating capacitors.
Principles and technology of power factor correction (PFC) capacitorsMost electrical loads, including transformers, welding sets, induction motors, and induction furnaces are inductive. Inductive loads require both working power, usually measured in kilowatts (kW),...
