Power Factor Correction
The COMAR factory, established in 1968, was built with the future in mind. By installing superior equipment the factory has remained technologically advanced even by to-day’s standards. Originally, the production was based on a wide range of “oil-paper” capacitors.The quality of the product was such that the COMAR brand was soon acknowledged both in Italy and world wide. A large investment in research and development during this early period made it possible to commence production of the innovative metallized polypropylene film capacitors.The capacitors became part of the standard range in the 1972 and are still produced by all the main manufactures in the capacitors market. In the following years, the range was enlarged by addition of electrolytic capacitors and capacitors specifically for power electronics. Power factor correction equipment and power factor regulators were also developed in this period. Within recent years, because of the diffusion of static power converters,COMAR has examined and resolved the intricate problems of reactive compensation presented by harmonics. Their study of this subject has been so successful that COMAR is one of the leaders in this very demanding field. At present, due to the complete automation of all production lines and advanced test equipment it has been possible to increase production and improve the level of quality.
