Title

Comparism of Single Phase Power Factor Correction for Series and Parallel Topologies

Description

This paper presents dc ac and ac ac converter circuits including series and parallel switch capacitors topologies for electrical power factor correction equipment. Two parallel and series connection are made and tested to know the best method of connection to achieve an improved electrical power factor for eight loads. The output of the Centre-tap-transformer is connected to the input of the power factor correction (PFC) equipment measuring circuit after dc-ac or ac-ac selecting Electromagnetic Relay 1. A Single-Throw-Single-Pole switch is connected across the circuit so as to switch between the parallel and series topologies; while the output of this section is connected to the socket where loads are applied for measurement. The values obtained from each load applied are analyzed using calculations, tables, and graphs in order to ensure accurate results. The analyzed results obtained from the two different circuit arrangement are compared so as to know the best circuit arrangement to achieve an improved power factor.
