Kvar Energy Controller, Industrial Applications:
Kvar Energy Controller, Custom-Sized System
Larger individual motors with long run-times are custom-sized to optimize Power Factor. The preferred location to install a Kvar Energy Controller is primarily at the load side of the motor starter contactor, and in some cases, at the motor disconnect. National Electrical Code,(NEC) Article 460.
Kvar National is able to custom-size the correct Kvar unit for the motor by using the Patented KVAR Sizing Apparatus. This creates the largest savings and quickest ROI.
