Save costs with the intelligent SIVACON S8 technology
In a network, reactive power is caused by inductive linear loads, such as motors, transformers or reactors, and inductive, non-linear loads, such as converters, welding apparatus, arc furnaces or UPS systems. The sections for central reactive power compensation relieve transformers and cables, reduce transmission losses and therefore save energy. Depending on the load structure, the reactive power compensation is equipped with choked or unchoked capacitor subassemblies. The controller subassembly has an electronic reactive power controller for door installation. The C/k value setting takes place automatically. The multifunction display is also used to set and display various parameters. The desired target cos phi can be set from 0.8 ind to 0.8 cap. Network parameters such as U, l, f, cos phi, P, S, Q, harmonics are displayed. The capacitor subassembly (up to 200 kvar) with MKK capacitors has a fuse switch disconnector, capacitor contactors, discharge devices and ﬁlter reactors. The switch disconnector subassembly can optionally be used for the central safety isolation of the integrated capacitor subassemblies.
