All electrical energy coming into a facility is known as Apparent Power, and the power we as energy consumers use is defined as Real Power. Even though you pay for it, a portion of the power entering your electrical system is lost to ground and never consumed.
This is referred to as Reactive Power. The ultimate goal is to bring these two factors, Apparent Power and Real Power, closer together.
C3’s Power Conditioners adds capacitance (stored charge) via a series of capacitors. This enables the unit to capture the Reactive Power, commonly lost to ground, store it, and put it back into the system, evenly across all phases, as it is needed.
