The Power Factor Training program is a 12-hour, live online training course designed for electrical engineers, electrical technologists, electrical designers, plant electricians, and electrical maintenance specialists working in industrial, commercial, and institutional power systems.
The course covers the basic principles of Power Factor, its significance in industrial applications, and the benefits of correcting low Power Factor. Participants will learn about the different types of Power Factor and the means to correct it, including reactive power, capacitors, and inductive loads.
The course focuses on implementing Power Factor Correction in industrial applications with variable inductive loads, such as induction motors. Participants will gain an understanding of the different types of Power Factor Correction methods available, including plant-wide and distributed methods, and their respective advantages and disadvantages.
The training program also covers Power Factor principles in single-phase and three-phase AC power circuits. In addition, participants will learn how to calculate the Power Factor and three-phase power and the correction techniques used in each type of circuit.
This course is ideal for electrical engineering, maintenance, and operations professionals who want to gain a deeper understanding of Power Factor Correction and its applications in industrial systems. The live online format allows participants to engage with the instructor and other participants in real time, and the course is designed to be interactive and engaging. Upon completion of the course, participants will have the skills and knowledge to implement effective Power Factor Correction solutions and reduce energy costs in industrial applications.
