Automatic Power Factor Correction

MAKERS: Bruno Taranto Alvim

This project aims to automatically correct the power factor of a single-phase electricity network by inserting and removing capacitor banks when necessary, on the fly. Two PIC18F4520 microcontrollers was used for high availability. The power factor is the global index of quality of electricity. The insertion of capacitors is already a reality in the industry, but not in an automated way and controlled as proposed here.
