The reduction of reactive energy becomes necessary as a way for the efficient use of electrical energy, mainly in industrial activities. To reduce this undesired energy, it is necessary to correct the power factor, which results in an increase of the active energy of the electric system. Some loads, applied in the circuits of the company, generate harmonic currents, as for example the inverters of frequencies used in the electric motors, and the harmonics distort the voltage. These distortions, depending on the impedance, may result in resonance of the capacitors, with system inductances, and damage these capacitors, among other problems. To solve the resonance, detuning inductors are installed serially with the capacitors.
- Detuning Factor: 5.6%, 7% or 14%;
- Cooling: natural or forced;
- Degree of protection: IP-00 (suitable for sheltered installation);
- Frequency: up to 400HZ;
- Terminals: connectors for cables from 1.5 to 10mm² or terminal lugs or copper bars for currents greater than 60A;
- Fixing with metal
Inductors for capacitor banks, detuning reactor or blocking inductors are installed serially, with the capacitors, according to the network characteristics and the necessary correction.
