Power Factor Control Relay KSR
Neutral Out of Balance Relay for Star Connected Capacitor Banks Capacitor Bank Load monitoring relay with facility for power at 83-130V DC.
The Power Factor Control Relay KSR is similar to the EMM5 and is used to trigger warning and switching alarms for neutral out of balance currents.
The Power Factor Control Relay KSR can be used as a neutral out of balance current relay but it also offers much more protection to the capacitor bank than the conventional neutral current device. Because the Power Factor Control Relay KSR measures the three phase currents plus the neutral, as well asthe three phase voltages, threshold limits can be set so as to give an alarm of over voltage, over current or excessive THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) for Current and Voltage, including all harmonics up to the 63rd. The Power Factor Control Relay KSR will also provide an alarmif the frequency moves outside threshold limits.
Just like the EMM5, the Power Factor Control Relay KSR has 6 output relays with common point switching and two relays with three pole volt free contacts (N/O+N/C). The relay can be programmed when purchased to the threshold points specified. The Power Factor Control Relay KSR can be supplied for supply voltage 198-253V 50/60Hz or 83-130V DC. The required operating voltage must bestated on the order.
The Power Factor Control Relay KSR will provide the owner of the h.v. capacitor bank with the following alarm information:
Low Neutral Out of Balance current detected indicating one capacitor failed
High Neutral Out of Balance current indicating more than one capacitor has failed
Over Current (possibly due to Harmonics)
High THD Distortion
DC Power Supply or 50/60HZ
The technical specfication for Power Factor Control Relay KSR is similar to EMM5.
