IEEMA the industrial association for Electrical Industries is very proactive in educating and creating awareness in the market. Today IEEMA has announced a very insightful workshop on  Power Quality and Reactive Power Compensation. Take a look at the agenda and get in touch today to be part of this excellent program. We will meet you there.


Reactive Power Management has become very important now-a-days because of introduction of power factor based tariff. Power Factor (PF) is crucial in all Electrical Power utilizing environments. A good understanding of Power Factor is essential for practicing Electrical Engineers and middle level managers as a good control of PF could lead to many advantages – energy saving, reduction of current loading, higher output from motor and generators, longer life for cables and equipment  – to mention a few. However, the equipment that is used to improve power factor interacts with network harmonics and brings down overall reliability. This workshop addresses such issues and gives solution to mitigate these problems.
