The ZVEI Power Capacitors and Power Quality Section represents the economic, technical and industrial policy interests of manufacturers and users of power capacitors, passive and active compensation and filter systems, power factor controllers, chokes for power factor correction and power factor correction systems in Germany and at European level. These supply essential components for efficient generation, transformation and use of electrical energy, from capacitors to complete systems and associated services. The aim is to optimise the economic and political framework conditions and to strengthen the German-speaking and European location.

The range of topics covered by the association's work includes innovative reactive power management in Germany's power supply, standardisation work in the field of power capacitors, the development of safety instructions and product-related and operational environmental protection.
