POWER FACTOR CORRECTION FOR THE ELECTRIC GROUNDWATER PUMPING SYSTEM
The power factor for electric groundwater pumping system in the area without electricity is important for the efficiency of the system. Therefore, the objective of this research was to improve the power factor of the electrical system of underground water pump to be higher to save electricity in pumping water. As a result, the engine used to drive the generator shaft drives the less load, causing the engine to use less fuel. From the experimental results, the power factor correction could be improved to the maximum from 0.806 to 0.982. Causing the electric power consumption of the groundwater pumping system to decrease. As a result, it reduces the fuel consumption of the 16 HP engine by 0.058 liters per hour, representing 4.77%.
