Reactive power optimisation

Are you responsible for energy management in a large enterprise? When you look at your electricity bill, does the item for reactive power make you blind for anger? No wonder: Unlike active power, no consumers can be operated with reactive power. However, it is required to generate magnetic fields and to transmit the active power in the power grid. As a result, the reactive power oscillates between generator and consumer and burdens both the power lines and your energy costs.


Reactive power relief

It is in your own hands to reduce or completely avoid these costs – by means of in-house reactive power compensation. Such a system is able to both provide and resume reactive power. In this way, you can reduce the proportion of reactive power that you obtain from the energy supplier to zero.

Fortunately, a system for reactive power compensation can be retrofitted. Or maybe you are planning new buildings or have an extension in mind: In this case, even the dimensioning of the connected load can be shifted in your favour and investments in transformers otherwise required can be dispensed with.


How to gain even more

Everything is possible with the blueplanet 50.0 TL3 RPonly from KACO new energy: Our reactive power compensation unit offers all the advantages of conventional compensation systems and is particularly handy and easy to maintain. This results in a very short payback period at low investment costs.

Your electricity bills won't be a feast for the eyes in the future either, but you will open them with a steady hand at least.

Good to know

The compensation of reactive power reduces CO2 emissions! The German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association has calculated that grid losses across Germany can be reduced by 1.7 billion kWh per year. This corresponds to the electricity consumption of almost 500,000 households and CO2 emissions of 950,000 tonnes.
