Technical Information

There are two components of power: reactive power and working real power

Reactive power is used to create EMF in the inductive loads in your home and business. This power performs no “real” work. Working power (kW) is the power that performs the function of the load. These two components combine to formulate Apparent power KVA, the total power which the load consumes. Apparent power is equal to the square root of kW2+kVAR2. Power factor is the ratio of working power (kW) to apparent power (kVA). In other words looking at all the power that a load consumes, how much of it (percentage wise) is used to perform the real work?Obviously the lower power factor, the lower the ratio between the apparent power and the working power, the more efficient the load is.

The Ideal Power Saver improve the power factor by reducing the amount of reactive power (kVAR) that the load draws from the utility company. This is accomplished by supplying the reactive power locally at the load by the creation of the EMF within the inductive load. As the motor operates, this reactive power is “pulled” and “pushed” to and from the capacitors by the motor. In simpler terms, it can said that inductive receivers (motors, etc) consume reactive energy, while capacitor (capacitive receivers) produce reactive energy. Therefore the amount of reactive power purchased from the utility company by a power factor optimization has been greatly reduced, or eliminated.

Conclusion – Benefit of increased power Factor

Consumers whose applicable tariffs include MD charges and Power Factor surcharge shall be able to reduce their energy demand as well as consumption and thus will benefit from both the reduced cost of energy and reduced consumption of electricity. As for consumers whose applicable tariffs do not include MD charges and Power Factor surcharge shall benefit from the reduction in energy consumption due to increased efficiency of their electrical appliances, reduces in losses and better voltage profiles.


Basic Concepts

U voltage AC 220V is used in India and AC 110V in some other countries and territories. The measuring units are voltage.
I Current. The quality of electric charge pass per time unit. The measuring units is ampere.
T time. The measuring units are second, minute and hour etc.
R resistance. All electric appliances have resistance. The measuring unit isohm.
P power. The work that is done per time unit. The measuring unit is watt I watt = 1 voltage-ampere. P = U*1.
W work. Work is done do obtain energy. The measuring unit for work in electricity meter is K watt-hour. 1kK watt-hours = 1000 voltage ampere-house. W = P*T = U*I*T
All electric appliance have resistance. Because of the resistance, electricity is consumed to generate heat. The heat generated is useless unless it is what we expect. Reduction of heat generation, i.e. reduction of power wastage is the fundamental source of electricity saving.
To reduce power wastage, we can reduce either resistance or current. The resistance of electric appliance is inherent and unchangeable once the appliance is made.

Effects of Energy Saving

The effect of energy saving will be seen upon use for about a month. It can save power except for purely resistor appliance. Power Saver max is effective for all other type but most effective for induction appliance like AC, Refrigerator, Washing Machine, Fan, T.V., Tube Lights, Water Pumps, Deep Freezer, Mixer Grinders and all types of single phase motors etc. they are also efficient for other electrical appliances to a certain extent. Overall, the longer they are used, the better the effects will be matching uses the results of econnomizing on electricity well to be best.
