# 1
for efficient operation we have to maintain unity power factor(1) but it is possible only for resistive loads
that's why in EB lines trys to maintain approximately 1 that is 0.99 to decrease the losses. capacitor bank used to POWER FACTOR correction

Generally capacitors are used to improve power factors in inductive loads... Inductive load will reduce the current phase with voltage.. so lagging power factor is obtained.. in order to recover that, capacitance is provided which will reduce the voltage phase with current..so the pf remains almost near to 1(not exactly one)...

(1)the cosine angle between voltage and current is called
power factor ,

cas 0= 1

(2)whenever the cosine angle between voltage and current
zero time a full power is utilized / consumed

but power factor lagging time a full power is not
utilized/consumed

(3)so we are maintained in power factor in unity

(4) to regulate voltage in power system we are used in
capacitor bank used(vanthni@yahoo.com)

Shall I compare the apparent power or the active power? I know usually factories use compensated capacitors (or other similar components) to compensate the reactive power, so if I use the apparent power, it's not the real power consumed. 2 In 11kv transmission line whats the maximum power can be drawn?
