Power is that the basic necessity for the economic development of country. Power consumption is increasing day by day at a very high rate. The modern system is such a lot dependent upon the utilization of voltage that it's become the half and parcel of our life. So we'd like to seek out out the causes of power loss and improve the ability system. Due to industrial enterprise the utilization of inductive load will increase and thence facility losses its potency. So we'd like to boost the ability issue with an acceptable technique.
The aim our project is to build the automatic power factor control (APFC) unit, which is able to monitor the energy consumption of a system and automatically improve its power factor. Smart internet of things system was implemented in the design for accurate power calculation. The APFC device calculates the reactive power consumed by a system’s inductive load and compensate the lagging power factor using capacitance from a capacitor bank.
