Royal Decree 661/2007, regulates the production of electricity under a special regime applicable to electricity produced from renewable energy sources. This royal decree supersedes Royal Decree 436/2004, establishing new tariffs and premiums for each kind of facility covered and incorporating renewable energy, waste to energy, hybrid systems and cogeneration plants into the special regime.
An automatic Power Factor correction unit is used to improve Power Factor. A Power Factor correction unit usually consists of a number of capacitors that are switched by means of contactors. These contactors are controlled by a regulator that measures power factor in an electrical network.
Power Factor correction may be applied by an electrical power transmission utility to improve the stability and efficiency of the transmission network. It is evident the importance of a good modulation form inductive 0.95 power facto to capacitive 0.95 base on 3 scenarios (low, medium and peak load) to obtain economic incentives between -4% to +8%.
The automatic control system desing for generators cos (phi), is a engineering labor that Genelek Sistemas realizes specifically for each plant and which correct development and execution allows to obtain ideal economic bonifications, supporting the safety of the generators and of the electrical facilities.
