OPTIM EMK4-175-440, Static capacitor bank
The OPTIM-EMK-series capacitor banks have been designed for power factor correction in networks with fluctuating loads.
The power variations are relatively quick (measured in milliseconds) and the operation is thus carried out by thyristors, which are connected to a voltage controller board, so that the connection and disconnection of the capacitor is carried out with zero voltage difference.
Transients are prevented between the connection and disconnection of the steps, obtaining an immediate response to the load fluctuations.
The most common application is with individual loads or in installations where a quick compensation response is needed (for ex., welding units, motors for lifting units, lifts, etc.)
