Capacitor insulation supplies are used in both consumer and military markets for high reliability and best suited for use in high request electric equipment. Most common supplies are capacitor insulation sleeves which provide protection from electrical hazards and stabilize the electricity performance.
Capacitor insulation lowers the electrical costs in two ways:
- Capacitors lower electrical cost two ways: In many areas, the electrical rate includes a penalty charge for low power factor. Installation of power capacitors on the electrical distribution system within a facility makes it unnecessary for the utility to supply the reactive power required by inductive electrical equipment. The savings the utility realizes in reduced generation, transmission, and distribution costs are passed on to the customer in the form of lower electrical bills.
The second source of savings derived through the use of power factor correction capacitors is in the form of increased KVA capacity in the electrical distribution system. Installation of capacitors to furnish the non-productive current requirements of the facility makes it possible to increase the connected load by as much as 20 percent without a corresponding increase in the size of the transformers, conductors, and protective devices making up the distribution system which services the load.
