Title: White Paper: VFDs can be used to Improve Input Power Factor
Number: WP.AFD.10
Date: 08/08/2013
Description: White Paper authored by Mike Rucinski describing how VFDs improve Input Power Factor. Power factor is an indication of how effectively a load uses power. A high power factor indicates effective utilization of electrical power, while a low power factor indicates poor utilization. Utilities charge higher rates when power factor is low because of the extra burden imposed on the distribution system. Not only does the distribution system have to accommodate the real power being consumed, but it must also accommodate the reactive (non work producing) component flowing within the system.
