APQ LLC Type F Solutions are designed for operation in environments that have harmonic frequencies present. Power Factor Correction capacitors can become overloaded or cause harmonic resonance and fail prematurely when they share a power system with harmonic producing loads. Properly introduced inductance can protect the system or even mitigate the harmonic frequencies.

APPLICATION - Additional considerations are required when applying power factor correction solutions on systems that contain non-linear loads such as variable frequency drives or ups systems. The harmonic frequencies that exist on these systems must either be blocked from the capacitors through the use of a detuning reactor or mitigated with a tuned power factor correction solution. APQ Series Type F Power Factor Correction Filter Banks can be used to improve the Power Factor of single loads, multiple inductive loads, or entire facility loads. Units are available in fixed or automatic configurations.

  • Type FFB Fixed Power Factor Filter Systems

    APQ Type FFB Fixed Power Factor Filter Systems are sized to a specific load. Typically applied at the inductive load, both the facility and the utility benefit from the installation.

  • Type FAB Automatic Power Factor Filter Systems

    APQ offers "Detuned" automatic capacitors that incorporate a harmonic blocking reactor in each individual capacitor step to prevent harmonic currents from damaging the capacitor. The total bank of capacitors is segmented into convenient increments of kVAR which are switched on-line as needed through the use of a electronic power factor controller. Automatic capacitor systems can be supplied either with or without a main circuit breaker or switch.

APQ offers both standard and custom capacitor systems.
