Individual power factor correction is achieved by connecting capacitors directly to the terminals of motors, transformers and other loads. In this manner the network avoids distributing the reactive power absorbed by load.

Individual power factor correction capacitors reduce additional losses caused by cable and transformer coil heating, and allows for the installation of smaller sized wire. Improved power factor can allow for the installation of additional loads. Power factor correction also reduces voltage sag, improving start-up and operating conditions of electrical devices as well as power factor, which has a favorable effect on a facility’s power bills.
