Abstract

The reduction of energy supplies, the increase of the problems of environmental pollution and generally the negative effects of electrical energy production, necessitate the energy saving. The optimization of the power factor saves energy in industrial applications. This paper aims to study the cosφ using compensations capacitors, the benefits of replacement them, the method of optimization using these capacitors, in order to succeed the best technoeconomical solution and a case study in Industry Campus of Kavala.
