• Reactive power compensation
Although the reactive power required by inductive loads is not used in profitable work, it has to be generated, transported and distributed through the electrical network. This fact forces to oversize transformers, generators and lines, as well as provokes the existence losses and line voltage drops. For this reason, most of the electrical authorities penalize reactive power consumption with additional charges. Electrical capacitors installed near the inductive loads produce the reactive power required by these inductive loads.
