XL Systems Reduce Facility Reactive Power (VAR)
REACTIVE POWER (kVAR)
Reactive Power is background “phantom energy” movement in AC circuits due to the production of electric and magnetic fields in inductive loads. This “phantom energy” is due to phase shifting between current and voltage. In extreme cases, voltage and current can shift so much that almost no useful work is performed. This shift is what causes demand for kVAR which inductive loads need to operate. Utilities supply and bill for peak Reactive Power (kVAR).
TIS TEST RESULTS (500 HP MOTOR)
Test results show an average REDUCTION in Reactive Power of 84.3 kVAR or 37.5%. The XL System reduces billed kVAR and reduce stress on inductive loads such as motors.
