Abstract

Low Voltage Capacitor banks for reactive power compensation are well established. However, use of High Voltage capacitor banks for VAR compensation is not used as extensively by industries & utilities due to various complexities. For certain specific industries using Electric Arc Furnaces, the LT capacitor bank compensation would not yield the intended benefit as the high inductive load is contributed by the Arc Furnace transformer & reactor on the High Voltage side. Conventional HV Capacitor Bank with automatic power controller relay may not be the right solution for such applications. This paper discusses the challenges and issues faced in VAR compensation for a factory using multiple Electric Arc Furnaces with highly fluctuating load pattern. A capacitor bank with PLC system for automatic regulation has been implemented for achieving near unity power factor.

Key Words

Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF), power factor, PLC, harmonics. .
