A white paper on improving power factor using Eurotherm’s EPower automatic load-tap changer and a simulation tool have been posted to http://tr.im/LTCwhitepaper for free download.

According to “Automatic Load Tap Changer for Industrial Loads” from Eurotherm, Leesburg, Va., its load-tap changer can reduce or eliminate harmonic distortion caused by phase-angle firing. It can increase and maintain power factor, reduce energy use and lower operating expenses for industrial loads. A simulator tool, also available on the web site, lets manufacturers see how load-tap changers can improve the power factor in their process.
