The Top 6 Power Factor Misconceptions Resulting from Harmonics
In this webinar, given by Tony Hoevenaars at Mirus International, we show you how to recognize when low power factor is the result of distortion reactive power rather than inductive reactive power. We describe why simply adding power factor correction capacitors in these circumstances can do more harm than good. Also, we review the application of passive harmonic filters, with an emphasis on their ability to improve power factor. We address the reality underlying 6 of the most common assumptions about power factor that no longer apply.
