TCI High Endurance Capacitors are intended for use in electrical environments that are rich in harmonic content due to non-linear loads. Some applications include factories and plants with a large numbers of variable frequency drives and/or DC drives, waste water treatment plants, pumping stations, facilities that co-generate power, and power consumers that are incurring penalties for poor power factor.

KCAP High Endurance Capacitors

The reactive power demanded by motors, transformers and higher KVARMS demanded by harmonic currents contribute to poor power factor in industrial and commercial buildings. Simply put, poor power factor means that energy is not being efficiently delivered or consumed. Power factor correction capacitors releave the reactive power burden on supply generators, transformers and facility wiring.

However, capacitors cannot be safely applied in buildings with a high content of harmonically-rich non-linear load, as their addition may induce plant resonance, a dangerous and costly situation. Force tuning (or de-tuning) capacitor banks may correct for the potential for resonance. However, standard capacitor cells, with service factor ratings designed for linear loads, still may not be suitable in non-linear environments. Testing shows that capacitors will need to tolerate at least 150% over-current and higher than intended temperatures in those environments.

If you are looking for TCI KCAP Capacitors, please call us on (800) 894 - 0412 or email us at we will do our best to help you find the TRANS-COIL KCAP capacitor that you are looking for at the most competitive prices possible. If you are searching for TCI KCAP high endurance capacitors technical information (data-sheets) please use the datasheets or product selection guide page links.

TCI High Endurance capacitors are designed, built and tested specifically for use in harmonically rich envirenments. They are suitable for use in de-tuned central power factor correction banks, and in drive-applied and load-applied harmonic filters. They are capable of handling 190% of rated current continuously in a 65 degree C ambient temperature. Properly applied, they offer a robust and cost effective solution to inefficient power delivery and consumption.

TCI High Endurance Capacitors are metallized poypropylene film, with self-healing properties. Three winding elements are encapsulated and connected to form a 3-phase capacitor element. Overpressure tearoff fuses prevent failure at the end of service life. The impregant is natural oil (fire point >300 degree C).

Capacitors are delivered with discharge resistors. One, two or four can mounting brackets are available. Brackets are pre-drilled to accept capacitors 12m mounting/grounding stud.

ABB Contactors

ABB's UA contactors can be used for the switching of capacitor banks whose inrush current peaks are less than or equal to 100 times nominal rms current. The capacitors must be discharged (maximum residual voltage at terminals ≤ 50 V) before being re-energized when the contactors are making. Many configurations of accessories are possible depending on whether these are front-mounted or side-mounted.

WEG Drives

Fast Commissioning and infinite possibilities, make this Drive perfect for machines. The CFW500 covers power levels from 0.18 to 15 kW (0.25 to 20 HP). SuperDrive G2 is a tool for parameter setting, command and monitoring of drives. With intention to make the use of drives as easy and convenient as possible, the software provides user-friendly viewing, manipulating, and editing data with the drive. The data can also be stored and retrieved.
