Power factor controllers MCE ADV
Power factor controllers MCE-6 ADV (6 steps) and MCE-12 ADV (12 steps) are designed to measure the requirements of reactive energy of an installation and give the orders of connection and disconnection of capacitors so as to keep the set up cos φ.
Plug and Play
When a power factor controller is installed, a number of parameters need to be set up for a proper operation. Some of these parameters might be hard to know, such as, for example, the voltage phases or the correspondence of the measured current with its voltage, as well as the current transformer ratio. Controller MCE ADV incorporates a smart automatic process that detects the necessary parameters, such as:
- C/K: calculates the ratio of the current transformer and the power of the smallest step.
- Phase: Identifies the voltage sequence and correspondence with the current. In other words, it identifies the UL1, UL2, UL3, when the current measured is IL1, IL2, IL3 and whether it has been connected in the opposite way.
- Number of stages installed and Program: by sequential connection of all steps it finds out how many steps are installed and then calculates the program, i.e., the power ratio between capacitors.
