BEAMA is delighted to publish its ‘Guide to Power Factor Correction’. This paper has been written with the member of BEAMA’s Capacitor’s Group, experts in the field of power factor correction.  Power factor correction allows customers to reduce their electricity bills, minimise their maximum power demand and lower their copper losses.  Also, as the electricity system adapts to the future low carbon environment, the extra network capacity released by power factor correction will become ever more important.  This paper explains the basics of power factor, its effects and how to use power factor correction equipment to reduce these effects and deliver benefits to the customer.
