PFC for home use Answered
I'm thinking about using PFCs (power factor correction capacitors) for my whole house. Has anyone here done it? I currently use PFCs on my neon sign transformer (an d it works), but I have a question. Why wouldn't one capacitor effect my whole house? or does it and it's just because it's a tiny cap (only about 20uF) that the results are negilagble? Also, what stops it from just affecting my house to the whole power grid? thankyou EDIT: I just read somewhere that the power company for residential homes charges the same whether you use PFCs or not, they just somehow mesure the real power... Is that true?
