go to the Reactive Power Conditioners product page Holger Hannemann asked on Jul 19th, 2014 in Reactive Power Conditioners

When would I need to use the PCS100 Reactive Power Conditioner?

Holger Hannemann, Global Sales Manager

ABB's answer

The PCS100 RPC is perfect for applications with fast/dynamic changing reactive power demand. Imagine processes like welding, presses, cutting or furnaces. DC drives are used when height torque at low speed is required, for example cranes, lifts, cable cars, centrifuges. However DC drives also create issues with power factor and low order harmonics which the PCS100 RPC can solve. Another typical application are single or 2 phase loads creating unbalanced currents or voltages. The PCS100 RPC also corrects those.
