TIBCON POWER CAPACITORS are manufactured
by Tiberwala Electronics Ltd. as ISO 9001 Company, which
is one of the larges manufacturers of A.C. Capacitors in
India. The company also manufacturers MPP film for
capacitors which is made on Leybold High Vacuum Roll
Coating Plants (Germany) in a technical tie up with ICAR
s.p.a. Italy The quality system conforms to ISO 9002.
Over the years , TIBCON has built expertise, emulated
latest technologies and has acquired wide acclaim for
the quality of its products
Why use Power
It is obligatory for every customer of electric power to
maintain power factor close to unity. Normal Power loads
(KW) being inductive in nature, necessitate excess
apparent power supply (KVA) and need capacitive
loads (KVAR) for correction
¤ Reduced power costs due to reduction in KV A demand.
¤ Prevention of low
power factor penalties. Release of system capacity due
to reduction in total current drawn from the mains.
¤ Reduction in power
losses, increase in efficiency of the system and life of
electrical transmission equipment.
¤ Reduction in voltage
drop, improving voltage regulation.
¤ Reduction in size of
cables, transformers and switchgear with consequent
lowering in capital costs.
¤ Cost of capacitor is
recovered in a short period.
¤ 100% depreciation can
be claimed in the first year, under Income Tax Act.
TIBCON HEAVY DUTY CAPACITORS
TIBCON MPP Heavy Duty Capacitors are
specially designed to meet demands of heavy duty
industrial loads such as forging shops, rolling mills,
rectifiers etc. TIBCON Heavy Duty Capacitors are built
with the correct degree of protection, to withstand
higher over current and higher surge voltages.
USE OF HEAVY EDGE FILM
TIBCON Power capacitors are manufactured with Aluminium
- Zinc or Silver - Aluminium Zinc metallised, heavy edge
M.P.P. Film which ensures better bonding between the
electrode layer and the end spray. Heavy edge has high
current carrying capacity and ensures better withstand
of the electro-mechanical stresses caused by the
The Power Capacitors have excellent selfhealing property
whereby any electrical short circuit inside the element
is cleared in milliseconds without affecting the normal
operation of the capacitor.
LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION
The low energy consumption keeps the internal operating
temperature low, extends the useful life of the Power
capacitor and reduces operating costs.
HIGH TEMPERATURE CAPABILITY
low dissipation of MPP Film combined with the superior
thermal conduction property of the encapsulate permits
operation under high temperature condition.
TIBCON Power Capacitors are available in modular
construction. This construction enables easy and
inexpensive repair at site and also saves on spares
TIBCON Power capacitors are provided with inductor coils
to control the inrush current to the capacitors. This
feature ensures long term stability of KV AR output and
extends their life.
COMPACT IN SIZE
TIBCON Power Capacitors are designed for compactness and
efficient cooling. Thus, capacitors ranging upto 8 KV AR
are compact in size and the higher rating capacitor
units are provided with ventilation.
1. Range : 1 KV AR to 25 KV AR In
2. Power output Tolerance : For higher output, banking
facility is provided.
3. Rated Voltage : 0% to + 1 0%
4. Frequency : 440VAC/415VAC 50HZ
5. No. of Phases Connected :Single Phase or Three Phase
with or without internal Delta Connection.
6. Upper limit of Temperature Category: 50°C
7. Insulation level : 2.5 KV
8. Discharge Resistors : Externally connected
9. Applicable Standard : IS : 2834 - 1986 (II Revision)
TIBCON Power capacitors are guaranteed
against manufacturing defects for a period of 12 months
from the date of installation or 1 8 months from the
date of purchase, whichever is earlier.
RECOMMENDED RATING OF ACCESSORIES
Recommended Rating of Control Switchgear
to be used with 415/440 volts, 50 HZ, 3 Phase Delta
TABLE FOR DETERMINING POWER CAPACITOR
Power Capacitor (KV AR)=Connected load
(KW) X Multiplying Factor
For the given load of 100 H.P., Corresponding KW= 100 X
0.746 = 74.6
Existing Power Factor = 0.85
Desired Power Factor = 0.95
From the row and column of the table, obtain
Multiplying Factor = 0.291
Power Capacitor (KV AR) = Connected load
(KW) X Multiplying Factor = 74.6 X 0.291 = 21.70.
Power Capacitor of 20 KVAR should be selected.

RATING FOR DIRECT CONNECTION TO INDUCTION MOTORS
The recommended Capacitor
ratings, shown in the table, are for improving the power
factor to 0.95, and these values are for guidance only.
