Don’t hesitate to send us your feedback after testing it, here in this topic !
Thank you for the PowerFacAging calculator. I had previously done some calculations for a large refrigeration business that has a 150 kVA maximum demand and Power Factor of 0.75.
The electricity grid in Australia is undergoing rapid investment and expansion. As a result the cost per kVA has jumped from $6 / month to $10 / month over the last year. Your calculator limits the price to $10 / kVA. A higher upper limit will soon be needed in Australia.
The calculator also limits the price of PFC systems to $50 per kVAR. Quotes received for installation so far in Australia are near $70-$80 / kVAR.
