Question

A particular load has a pf of 0.8 lagging. The power delivered to the load is 40 kW from a 220-V rms 60-Hz line. What value of capacitance placed in parallel with the load will raise the pf to 0.9 lagging?

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 7In order to find the capacitance value, we have to calculate the reactive power before the compensation (load power factor) and the reactive power after the compensation (load + capacitance power factor).
