Power Factor Correction Capacitors and Harmonics How PFC Capacitors Affect Harmonic Levels_33

Read how PFC capacitors affect power factor and harmonics, and understand their importance to power networks.


Power networks have become increasingly more complex with the rapid growth of non-linear loads. These additions place significant burden on a network, resulting in a reexamination of today’s installations.


This white paper briefly overviews some power quality basics including: power factor, harmonics, and power factor correction capacitors.
