#### Question

An industrial load, located in Memphis, has the following characteristics: 100 kW at 0.70 pf lagging and the line voltage is 220$\angle 0^{\circ}$ V rms. Find the value of the capacitor that when placed in parallel with the load will raise the power factor to 0.92 lagging.

#### Step 1

1 of 7

In 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).
