What is power factof?..

RATIO BETWEEN ACTIVE POWER AND APPARANT POWER IS CALLED
POWER FACTOR.

POWER FACTOR= ACTIVE POWER/APPARANT POWER
= VICOS/VI

What is power factof?..

it is angle betwen voltage & current.it depends upon the

 Is This Answer Correct ? 11 Yes 2 No

What is power factof?..

Basically power factor is the cosine angle between the
active power to the apparent power.

It can be analysed through by power triangle.

p.f.=active power/apparent power
kW/kVA

What is power factof?..

POWER FACTOR IS COSINE OF ANGLE BETWEEN VOLTAGE & CURRENT
IN AC CKT. HOWEVER IN SIMPLE TERMS IT CAN BE DESCRIBED AS
EFFICIENCY FACTOR OF LOAD IN p.u. IT SIGNIFIES WHAT AMOUNT
OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY IS REQD BY LOAD WITH A GIVEN P.F.
THUS IF TWO MOTORS OF SAY 80 KW WITH ONE HAVING P.F. 0.8
& OTHER HAVING PF 0.85, THEN FOR RATED LOAD FIRST MOTOR
WILL REQUIRE 100KVA WHILE OTHER MOTOR WILL REQUIRE 94.1KVA
OF ENERGY

 Is This Answer Correct ? 6 Yes 0 No

What is power factof?..

IT IS THE RATIO OF RASISTANCE AND TOTAL INPEDNCE OF THAT
CIRCUIT AND DENOTED BY COS PHI.
P.F. = R/Z

 Is This Answer Correct ? 14 Yes 9 No

What is power factof?..

PF= Active power/apparent power

Inductive load causes lagging current and lagging laffing

 Is This Answer Correct ? 5 Yes 0 No

What is power factof?..

Power factor means the power utilized versus power delivered.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 4 Yes 2 No

What is power factof?..

power factor is the cosine of angle between voltage and
current... in resistive load power factor is 1
