AllPower provide annual servicing and maintenance of your PFC, which we recommend is performed at least once per year.
Capacitors can deteriorate over time; the dielectric inside breaks down the more they’re switched, the longer they’re in operation and the more external events they’re subjected to. Therefore, keeping on top of the health of your PFC equipment is important for it to continue operating at an efficient power factor.
It’s even more important if your PFC equipment is detuned. Capacitor deterioration will change the tuning frequency, which can result in harmonic magnification and/or absorption and subsequent loss of multiple capacitors in the same bank. The knock-on effect could result in power quality issues that can mean other electrical equipment on site is affected.
