Reactive Power Compensation A Practical Guide by Wolfgang Hofmann
Foreword and Acknowledgements
The aim of this e book is to increase the data on this specified discipline. This “technical information” solutions lots of questions arising in controlling reactive energy e.g. at parallel operation with turbines. This e book relies on a e book in German revealed by the VDE Verlag GmbH (Berlin and Offenbach) within the 12 months 2003. Some chapters have been revised and tailored or fully rewritten to adapt to new technological developments and altering requirements. The chapters have been primarily revised by:
Jurgen Schlabbach – Chapters 1 incl. 4; 18 and 22
Wolfgang Hofmann – Chapters 5 incl. 16 and 21
Wolfgang Simply – Chapters 17, 19 and 20
The authors want to thank all the businesses which have contributed photos and knowledge for the replace of this e book.We want to specific a particular phrase of due to Mr. M. Kreienberg of VDE publishers who supported the concept for this e book in English. His help within the creation of the drawings was very useful. Particular thanks are additionally because of the employees of John Wiley & Sons for his or her assist and cooperation throughout the preparation of this e book.
We’d additionally like to recollect the late Miss Nicky Skinner, who taken care of our e book mission on the very starting. Our thanks are additionally prolonged to our households for his or her endurance throughout the uncounted hours of writing the e book. Our honest thanks are directed to the next corporations who equipped us with documentations, images, (circuit-) diagrams and technical assist for the whole of 22 chapters of our e book.

The comprehensive resource on reactive power compensation, presenting the design, application and operation of reactive power equipment and installations
The area of reactive power compensation is gaining increasing importance worldwide. If suitably designed, it is capable of improving voltage quality significantly, meaning that losses in equipment and power systems are reduced, the permissible loading of equipment can be increased, and the over-all stability of system operation improved. Ultimately, energy use and CO2 emisson are reduced.
This unique guide discusses the effects of reactive power on generation, transmission and distribution, and looks at the compensation of existing installations in detail. It outlines methods for determination of reactive power and answers the questions that arise when controlling it, for example, at parallel operation with generators. There is also a chapter devoted to installation, maintenance and disturbances.
Key features include:
A concise overview as well as deep specific knowledge on the segment power factor regulation and network quality
Theory of reactive power compensation coupled with typical application examples such as car manufacturing, metal rolling and chemical works
Chapter summaries with charts explaining how to put the theory into practice
Coverage on the cost-saving aspects of this technology, including the efficient use of energy and the reduction of CO2
A practical guide for electrical engineers and technicians in utilities, this is also essential reading for maintenance engineers, designers, electrical contractors, manufacturing companies, and researchers, also those in industry and planning agencies. Insightful and clear, the book will also appeal to senior undergraduate and graduate electrical engineering students and professors.
