How to solve poor power problem or how to improve my power quality?

For our industry due to shortage of power we have provided generator (now running with generator), machines are operating from the generator power. But we have power quality problem there, we have not installed capacitor bank to improve generator power. Do we have any problem if we add capacitor bank panels to improve generator power. Do there any other method to improve power quality. Please note that due to this problem we are facing malfunctioning in our machines.

    You need an industrial-sized Uninterruptible Power Supply.

    I think you can try and compare the capacitors and loop coil starting for its efficiency in power output. I think the exact impedance matching makes the output power the utmost according to the maximum power transfer theory.

    A little unclear if you are talking about the quality of the power from your generator or from your utility. Assuming the latter…

    I don’t know that a capacitor bank will help, more details of your problem are needed.

    Why is the quality of the power from your generator poor? Is it the wrong voltage, wrong frequency? Poor voltage regulation? poor frequency regulation? Noise on the waveform? distorted waveform? Is the generator overloaded? What is the power factor? What are the loads on the generator? What are the “malfunctioning machines” and how are they malfunctioning?

    There are possible fixes, although many would indicate a low quality generator.
