Capacitors banks without proper maintenance:
> 25 % of expected savings are lost!
PowerFacAging is a very simple calculation sheet.
Its objective is to show how capacitor banks cave save you money,
but also to show that a significant part of the savings may be lost
if no proper maintenance is applied.
Without proper monitoring and maintenance of capacitor banks, the reactive power generated will be reduced after a period of time.
The reason can be a failure of capacitors or any other components in the system. This phenomena coupled with the possible increase of the power demand over the years lead to a loss of performance, and savings on the electricity bill being lower than expected.
