  • PFC (power factor correction; also known as power factor controller) is a feature included in some computer and other power supply boxes that reduces the amount ofreactive powergenerated by a computer.
  • Reactive power operates at right angles totrue powerand energizes themagnetic field.
  • Reactive power has no real value for an electronic device, but electric companies charge for both true and reactive power resulting in unnecessary charges.
  • In power factor controllers, the power factor (represented as “k”) is the ratio of true power (kwatts) divided by reactive power (kvar).
  • The power factor value is between 0.0 and 1.00.
  • If the power factor is above 0.8, the device is using power efficiently.
  • A standard power supply has a power factor of 0.70-0.75, and a power supply with PFC has a power factor of 0.95-0.99.
  • PFC is not used solely for computer power supplies.
  • In other industries, PFC equipment is used to reduce the reactive power produced by fluorescent and high bay lighting, arc furnaces, induction welders, and equipment that uses electrical motors.
  • In an electric power system, a load with a low power factor draws more current than a load with a high power factor for the same amount of useful power transferred.
  • The higher currents increase the energy lost in the distribution system, and require larger wires and other equipment.
  • Because of the costs of larger equipment and wasted energy, electrical utilities will usually charge a higher cost to industrial or commercial customers where there is a low power factor.
  • Power-factor correctionincreases the power factor of a load, improving efficiency for the distribution system to which it is attached.
  • Linear loads with low power factor (such asinduction motors) can be corrected with a passive network ofcapacitorsorinductors.
  • Non-linear loads, such asrectifiers, distort the current drawn from the system.
  • In such cases, active or passive power factor correction may be used to counteract the distortion and raise the power factor.
  • The devices for correction of the power factor may be at a centralsubstation, spread out over a distribution system, or built into power-consuming equipment.
