According to madhu's formulas,
KVAR= KW* (tanQ1tanQ2)
Q1 is intail power factor
Q2 is target power factor

Answer / santosh maske
Required data for calculation your demand KVAR
1.Existing P.F of Load (tanQ1)(0.92)
2.Required P.F (Improvement in P.F)(tanQ2)(0.99)
3.Supply Voltage  for reference(Voltage variation if any)
4.Load in KW (exam availabl with you i.e 500KW)
KVAR= KW(tanQ1tanQ2)
KVAR= 500(tan0.92 tan0.99)
KVAR = 500(0.2890)
KVAR = 141.75 KVAR (@ 142KVAR)
if you want to calculate by amp need following data
efficiency of motor, required P.F, KW,maganatising current
of motor,formula find in Electrical Machine Engineering

Answer / deepak
kVAR=kVA X sinphi
SO, sin phi=(1cos sq phi) underroot.
SO POWER FACTOR IS REQUIRED.

Answer / elangkumanan
25 kvar = 32amps load taken
12.5 kvar =16amps load taken
l6.25 kvar =8amps load taken
3.125kvar =4amps load taken
1.0775kvar =2amps load taken
1000amps capacitor required to 500kvar
Is This Answer Correct ?  5 Yes  1 No 
250 Kvar Capacitor bank is required for 500Kw load
(i.e,625Kva).
This is because the capacitor rating for any load is equal
to 40% of Kva.
i.e, Capacitor required=40%x Kva Load

Answer / saleem iqbal
plz identify your systems existing power factor and
targeted power factor which u want to improve, then apply
this formula
KW X (Tan phi 1  tan phi 2)
Is This Answer Correct ?  2 Yes  0 No 
Reactive power (KVAR) is increase due to run inductive load.as a result power factor is lagging. so have to use capacitive power to reduce this inductive or reactive load. generally we have to use 63% capacitive load to remove the reactive load.i.e.
active power=500KW
so 60% of this will be=(60*500/100) = 300 KVAR
so we have to use 300KVAr capacitive capacitor bank to remove this reactive power .

I have a current transformer with 1 main reading meter with transformer outside the building and a control panel having 5 CT reading meters with black round coils inside the building. I want to know, A) when current pass through the Transformers, will the current be reduced or be the same and after that B) when current pass through the CT meters with black round coils, will the current be reduced or be the same. C) in the above process will the reading of the main meter be same or different, from the total reading of all the 5 CT meters.

I have one ct of ratio 30002000/1 Amp its knee point voltage mentioned on name plate is 500333/30mA50mA at Vk/2. in secondary box there is three terminal named 1S1, 1S2, 1S3 then on which terminal obtained the knee point voltage ie 1S11S2 OR 1S11S3 & also specify the knee point voltage for the ratio 3000 from name plate.
