﻿Improving the power factor of Trane chillers
Trane offers power-factor correction equipment for its chillers to improve their efficiency. Raising the power factor by as little as 0.1 will improve available real power by up to 14%. A higher power factor also improves system reliability, minimises voltage drops and offers better power quality — reducing the risk of overheating and premature failure of motors.
The capacitor is mounted directly onto a chiller with adapter brackets. Only one capacitor panel is needed for a chiller, irrespective of the number of compressors or fans.
Kits are available for existing and new units of Trane’s RTAC and RTAD chiller ranges.
