Dear Engineer;

Actually i was working on installing a power factor correcting on a factory and i heard an info i just want to confirm it:
We all know that power factor correcting panels reduces the Kvar. and you get some discounts on the bill
What I heard is that with each 1 Kvar u SAVE, 10 Watta increases in ur consumption. Which means reducing Kvar will increase ur Watta which results a higher bill..but with the discounts u gain …the bill will be approximately the same…

What do u think?

Dear ;

Adding to what said before, you will have certainly a benefit and the bill, even with the losses of the capacitors, will be less, because the in Syria if the power factor is less than 0.90 you will pay some penalities plus the value of KVARh.
