The inability of efficient power factor monitoring on the 6 power factor control panels in the factory.
The integration of computer communicable Power Factor Controllers to the network and using a software that can monitor these from one place.
6 Power Factor Controller, 2 Ethernet Modem devices and Monitoring Software were used.
It was made possible to monitor the reactive energy parameters of the panels and to access the relay settings from the computer in the headquarters.
Because the personnel that were reserved for this task now had time to do other work, the overall work performance increased.
Thanks to all these measures taken, effective reactive power control was made possible throughout the facility. With the project cost at €10.000 the payback period was less than a month.
