REACTİVE POWER

Re-Activate Your Power

Reactive ie inactive power is defined as the power that cannot be used actively if the current and voltage are in different angular slices in the sinusoidal wave form.
The energy returned to the network is called reactive power. In other words, in circuits with inductive / capacitive characteristics, it is the power that is pulled for excitation of the magnetic circuit and returned in the next cycle. It is denoted by the letter "Q". This power is not wasted on the load, it is simply stored and sent back to the source. Hence, power is constantly exchanged between source and load. This situation causes the current flowing through the conductors in the system to increase. Its formula is: Q = U.I.sin (phi). Its unit (VAr) is defined as volt-ampere-reactive. Accordingly, in order to find the reactive power of the circuit, the current drawn by the load or loads, the voltage drop and the phase angle (phi) between current and voltage must be known. If the phase angle is known, sin (phi) can be found with the help of a trigonometric ruler. The trigonometric parts of the calculators give more precise results. Active power P and reactive power are represented by Q. The symbol of apparent power is S. Apparent power refers to the load on networks and cables and is used for the design of these systems. Another way is to know the apparent and active powers is enough to find the reactive power. In other words, the presence of any two of the P, S, and Q powers helps find the other. In the grid regulation, the use of reactive power is limited to 20% inductively and 15% capacitive based on active power consumption, due to the decrease in the capacity of the lines. In case of violation, a monthly penalty is applied for each grid connection point. The formation of reactive power also causes voltage oscillations and losses as power quality.

In the grid regulation, due to the capacity reduction in the lines, based on active power consumption, it is limited to 20% inductively and 15% capacitive. In case of breach, fines are applied for each industrial consumption point. The formation of reactive power also causes voltage oscillations and losses as power quality.
