It will switch ON/OFF capacitor banks as per the VAR requirement of system (set by the user).
Displays instantaneous power factor and annunciates capacitors functioning in a healthy mode.
Protects capacitor banks from excessive voltage and unwanted harmonics.
It will annunciate the malfunctioning of specific banks.
It will alert the user in case of Maximum Demand and penalty p.f. is reached.
Communicates with a distant computer actins as a data logger (of p.f. of active capacitors, of actual VAR position of the system) and gives a printout of the measured parameters. This will improve the user-friendliness of the device.
It will tide over transitory VAR swings and take action only for persistent VAR requirements.
A Power Quality Index will be available to the user. This is important in connection with various power electronic drives being used.
It has a watchdog facility to detect any inherent vulnerability in the instrument.
Calculates change in KVAR of capacitor banks with change in voltage and frequency and selects them accordingly.
