Journal Full Text PDF: Journal Full Text PDF: The Advantages of Capacitor Bank Usage in Energy Consumtion Optimization & kVArh Cost Saving (Energy Consumtion Optimization & kVArh Cost Saving for PLN UP3 Pekalongan Customer).
Abstract: PT Ronny Aquario Perkasa consumed more reactive power (kVArh) from July 2017 to June 2018, which caused PT Ronny Aquario Perkasa to pay IDR 301,702,151,- of kVArh fine to PT PLN. This penalty resulted in a significant increase in operational cost especially in electrical bills. In order to reduce the electrical bills, it is necessary for PT Ronny Aquario Perkasa to install Capacitor Bank to decrease reactive power consumption. However, the implementation of capacitor bank will introduce a significant provision and installation costs. Thus, it is necessary to perform a feasibility study (FS) analysis using the Net Present Value (NPV), Benefit – Cost Ratio (B-CR), Payback Period (PP), and Life Cycle Cost (Life Cycle Cost) method to calculate the feasibility of the investment made by PT Ronny Aquario Perkasa.
Keywords: Capacitor Bank & Reactive Power.
Indonesian government sets the selling price of electricity based on the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (Energy & Mineral Resources) Regulation no. 28 of 2016 which applies to all electricity user managed by the State Electricity Company (PLN). Large-scale customers such as Industrial, Business, Government, and Social tariff groups are given a limit on reactive power usage. If the reactive power usage exceeds 62% of the active power, or cos Q ≤ 0.85 inductive, then the excess reactive power is charged to the consumer.
The reactive power that is consumed by customers mostly is inductive reactive power. Inductive reactive power cannot be converted into power that can be directly used by customer. Inductive reactive power requires by generators, for electrical transmission to all electrical equipment, which uses coils such as electric motors, lamp ballasts, transformers, and others.
Inductive reactive power which arised from reactance in the PLN grid or inductive loads inhibits electrical current which absorbed by the load. Therefore, it is necessary to compensate it with the capacitive reactive loads.
The inductive reactive power of an electrical equipment cannot be eliminated, but it can be compensated by installing electrical equipment that has a capacitive reactive power which resulted in a less reactive power resultant. This electrical equipment is known as the Capacitor Bank.
To achieve cost savings and even free from the penalty caused by excess reactive power usage, precise calculation is required to determine capacity of the capacitor bank that
is going to be installed. The investment costs calculation that may be occurred from the Capacitor Bank installation also required. One time investment will be required and then monthly cost savings will be obtained throughout the life of the capacitor bank used.
Based on ETAP simulation result and harmonic distortion standards, the installation of capacitor banks in the industry leads to an increment of power factor in the electrical power network and can be operated without conneted to the system grid (Henri Matius Naibaho, 2016). After Capacitor Bank being installed in PT Ronny Aquario Perkasa’s electrical system, the reactive power usage will decrease. If there will be a business expansion or additional plan to increase the load in the future, it is necessary for PT Ronny Aquiario Perkasa to perform further analysis on capacitor banks capacity that has been installed in the factory to reduce reactive power consumption using the ETAP 16.0 application.
The installation of a capacitor bank at the PT Ronny Aquario Perkasa factory may reduce factory electrical bills. However, the implementation of bank capacitors will introduce a significant provision and installation costs. Thus, it is necessary to perform a feasibility study (FS) analysis using the Net Present Value (NPV), Benefit – Cost Ratio (B-CR), Payback Period (PP), and Life Cycle Cost (Life Cycle Cost) method to calculate the feasibility of the investment made by PT Ronny Aquario Perkasa.
2.1 Research Scope
The tools used for data collection in general are stationery, calculation tools, computers, printers, photocopy machines, cameras, transportation and accommodation, and others. The tools used for data analysis is a set of computers which consist of hardware and software.
To perform investment feasibility study analysis calculation, customer will need hardware and softwares. The hardware that is used to perform this calculation is a computer with minimum specification such as Intel Core i5 Processor, RAM Memory, Flash disk, and Printer. There are two softwares that are used, they are the ETAP PowerStation 16.0 application software for simulation and the customized excel based application which is used to calculate investment feasibility study analysis itself.
To present the result of the study analysist, customer will use the following programs:
a. Microsoft Word 2018, this program is used to generate reports to show the results of research data analysis process.
b. Microsoft Excel 2018 is used for processing and data
This research was conducted by analyzing and processing Load Profile result and Billing PT Ronny Aquario Perkasa as a customer. The Load Flow simulation process was carried out using the ETAP application in order to obtain the required data related to the Capacitor Bank.
2.2 Research Variables
1. Network variable value based on installed system on customer premises: approximate installed underground cable length.
2. Electrical system installation drawing: existing electrical system installation drawing is outdated, so this research uses typical installation drawing which shows the location of the capacitor bank and cable detail (e.g. the type and cable size) of the network to the load point.
3. CAPEX variable value: The former goods and services procurement data is not completely available, this research uses current price.
4. Energy consumption data variable: energy consumption has never been recorded since the first time Capacitor Bank was installed, so this research uses the averaged energy consumption over the past one year.
2.3 Data Collection Techniques
This research was carried out on a 380 Volt , low-voltage installation network, as a load from a consumer-owned distribution transformer which is supplied by the 20 kV medium voltage PLN substation in Batang.
Data collection of all electrical network installations and existing equipment is made by capturing size, quantity, and location / placement. Data load collection for each of the equipment was made at its full operated mode in order to obtain energy consumption, operation voltage, and load factor. After all data being recorded and recapped from each of the equipment, the next step is to measure the energy consumption load in each of the branch and at the main distribution panel.
The next step is to generate a single line diagram of system installation which is completed with cable data (e.g. cable type, size and length), location of electrical equipment such as the transformer, main distribution panel, equipment safeguard, load, and capacitor bank. All data from single line diagram is put together in one drawing using the ETAP PowerStation application and finally the
research data can be displayed as a complete picture. Single line diagrams which correlates with the location can be found in appendix 3a and single line diagram resulted form Etap can be found in appendix 3b. Below are steps to select appropriate capacitor bank:
1. Measure the initial load factor (CosQ1), voltage, and current at its maximum load.
CosQ1 =? V =? I =?
2. Calculate the apparent power (kVA), initial reactive power (kVAR1) from the initial CosQ (CosQ1). kVA1 = V.I.√3
kVAR1 = V.I.SinQ1.√3
3. Using kVA as reference (fixed kVA), calculate the final kVAR (kVAR2) with final CosQ (CosQ2) = 0.85. kVAr2 = V.I.SinQ2.√3
4. The capacity of the capacitor can be obtained from the difference between the initial kVAR minus the final kVAR.
KVAR Capacitor = kVAR1 – kVAR2
5. Determine the capacitor size per unit step. Common capacitor sizes that available on the market are 5kVAR, 10kVAR, 15kVAR, 25kVAR and 50kVAR. For the rest of the value (capacitor size), it can be double / paralleled per step.
6. Determine the number of switching steps. The number of steps is proportional to the number of machines / equipment which CosQ stability is maintained, because there is a possibility where machines do not operate simultaneously. Typically, switch that is available in the market starts from 3 to 12 steps.
7. Plant and equipment development data
To get a smooth curve CosQ value, it is recommended to use a large number of steps, but it will require a larger investment. Data collection carried out in this study was carried out by literature and experimental studies.
2.4 Data Analysis Techniques
The secondary data is obtained from literature studies while The primary data is obtained from measurement result using an application which later on will be processed and analyzed using quantitative methods at certain experimental object condition where some of variables are being set and manipulated.
The first application uses a software tool called ETAP PowerStation 16.0 which is one of the most widely used applications to simulate electric power systems. In general, in the planning simulation and analysis of electric power, there are important steps that must be taken, they are:
a. Draw a load plan
b. Know the data for each load
c. Design singleline diagram
d. Calculate load flow (load flow)
e. Do simulation using several alternatives of load power or the network used.
The analysis data that can be generated as a result is the amount of drop voltage and drop current on each of the conductor and equipment or load point, by knowing the magnitude of the load factor.
The second application uses MS Excel to determine investment feasibility analysis using tools that is designed to process quantitative data that is normally used in solving various business problems. The financial aspect plays important role as a basis in decision making, despite other aspects of the project feasibility study. Excel as a product of Microsoft Corp. equipped with various financial functions, including assessment of investment feasibility with the ARR (average rate of return), PP (payback period), IRR (internal rate of return), NPV (net present value) and PI (Profitability index) methods.
The research process flow on capacitors impact from a technical point of view describes as follows:
1) Inventory of goods and services procurement cost from Capacitor Banks installation.
2) Inventory of operational and maintenance cost from capacitor banks usage.
3) Inventory of electricity consumption costs paid to the electricity supplier (PLN).
a) Using a Capacitor Bank.
b) Without using a Capacitor Bank.
c) Cost savings.
