Why Attend This Training Course?
Improving power factor means reducing the phase difference between voltage and current. Since majority of loads are of inductive nature, they require some amount of reactive power for them to function. This reactive power is provided by the capacitor or bank of capacitors installed parallel to the load. Power factor improvement solutions can reduce KVA demand to lower your power bills and reduce carbon emissions in networks with varying levels of harmonics and also provide power factor correction. Many utilities need this particular course, which covers the illustration of main concepts of reactive power management using actual power factor case studies.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts. ACAD will provide participants a comprehensive assessment on the problems solved using the skills acquired in the training course.

Who Should Attend This Training Course?
This training course is intended to Electrical and Energy Engineers and Technicians who are involved in power factor improvement, as well as Energy Plant project managers.
