A Project to Correct Mill Power Factor

Selecting the proper size capacitor bank for power factor correction at a pulp mill with an existing capacitor bank in service requires many hours of computer modeling and system simulations. This paper discusses the calculations involved in specifying the capacitor bank and evaluates the system response to transient switching events involving the two capacitor banks. Finally, the paper provides a comparison of the results of the calculations with field measurements recorded during the commissioning of the new capacitor bank.
