Application of power-factor-correction capacitors in modern industrial plants must consider harmonic components of voltage and current in the application. Whether the capacitors are installed as power-factor correction for individual motors, as a bank of capacitors, or as a tuned filter capacitor bank, harmonic distortion can prove disastrous to the application. Three case histories are discussed.
