Seminar on “Power Factor Control Technique”

The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering has organized a seminar on “Power Factor Control Technique” on 08.09.2018.  The seminar was delivered by Dr.S. Elangovan, Professor – EEE to the II year EEE students.  The seminar includes the topics such as causes of low power factor, Effect of low power factor and measures to improve the power factor.

          He has explained about the classical power factor control technique such as Synchronous condensers.  He also explained the various power factor control techniques such as automatic static capacitor banks, harmonic elimination techniques. He also narrated the simulation of various power electronic converters and harmonic control techniques such selective Harmonic elimination, space vector modulation techniques etc. The students understood the topics and gave a very positive feedback about the seminar.
