In the present technological revolution power is very important, as the power demand in industrial and commercial load is increases. So we have to discover out the causes of control misfortune and progress the framework . Due to a variety of electrical and power electronics loads, the power system losses it’s efficiency, hence causing lagging power factor which gives heavy penalties to consumer by electricity board and also pollute the system environment. So we need to improve the power factor of the electrical system. It can be improved by using APFC system which can maintain constantly high power factor nearer to unity. Most of the load used in industries are inductive in nature due to this they consume reactive power which will affect the generation of plant. The motive of this project is to build an Automatic Power Factor Correction (APFC) panel, which is able to control the energy consumptions of a system and automatically improve its power factor.
Keywords- Power factor, APFC system, Power factor correction, System efficiency, Reactive power.
