Power factor is the ratio between the real or average power and the apparent power forms a very essential parameter in power system. It is indicative of how effectively the real power of the system has been utilized. The low of power factor will cause a trouble to a power supply company which need to supply apparent power to consumer, but need to pay in true power. Other than, the lower of power factor can cause a high current flowing in line system and more negative impact to the system. The way to overcome this problem is applying a power factor correction. The power factor correction (PFC) is a technique of counteracting the undesirable effects of electric loads that create a power factor that less that one. There are two type of power factor correction which is active power factor correction and passive power factor correction. This project was being develop to design a system counteracting a low power factor at industry that have load which motor. This is because of a lot of motor used in industry for operating system and can be cause of low power factor due to higher inductive loads. The MATLAB software being choose create and stimulate the circuit for this project The system will detect the lower of power factor and will tum on or off the capacitor in order to correct power factor. This capacitor will be placed in parallel with the loads. The main expected of this project is to get the ideal of power factor.
