how and why are capacitors are used to improve powerfactor?

Answer / gunasekhar
power factor poor means current is lagged behind voltage . capacitor has leading current. it compensates the phase angle between voltage and current when we connect capacitor.

Answer / guest
Generally, poor power facor means that the current lag
behind voltage because of inductive loads. Capacitors
supply leading current with respect to the voltage which
cancels out the effect of inductive loads. Thus the source
side views the loads as purely resistive one. ence,
capacitors are used to improve power factor

Answer / d.ramesh clsses
follow the answer#1 and you know, in capacitor the current has 90 degrees triangle forward than voltage and in inductors' current is 90 degrees backward than voltage, so because all motors are likes inductors because of theirs winding so capacitance reduces the angle between current and voltage and cause higher power factor and less energy consuming and high efficiency.

I BOUGHT A HAVELLS ACCL WITH GENERATOR STOP FASCILITY(i.e- BASICALLY IT IS A AUTO CHANGE OVER SWITCH) FOR MY HONDA EXK 2000S HOME GENERATOR (WHICH START IN PETROL & RUN IN KEROSENE). ACCL HAS 8 POINT. 2 FOR MAINS(PH & NUE), 2 FOR LOAD, 2 FOR GEN AND 2 FOR IGNITION POINT(X1 & X2). THE IGNITION POINT IS SPECIALLY FOR AUTO ENGINE STOP WHEN MAINS POWER RESTORE. I CONNECT THIS X1 & X2 POINT TO THE GENERATOR STATER MOTOR & EARTHING POINT. BUT WHEN MAINS FAILS THE GENERATOR COULD NOT START, BUT WHEN DISCONNECT THOSE X1 OR X2 POINT, THEN THE GENERATOR START. BUT WHEN MAINS ON THEN THE GENERATOR SHOULD START, AND WHEN I OFF THE MAINS THE GENERATOR AUTOMATICALLY STOP. PLESE HELP ME HOW I STOP THE GENERATOR AUTOMATICALLY WHEN THE MAINS RESTORE.
