Can anybody tell me why inductors draw lagging current and capacitors draw leading current from su..

Answer / md

lets we start with resistor in which voltage and current
are in same phase means when voltage attains its peak at
the same time current attains its peak but when it is
passed throuh inductor than rate of change of current is
opposed by inductor so when voltage attains its peak,
current is not able reach at peak at the same time but gets
delayed by some degree depends on inductance. in case of
capacitance rate of change of voltage is opposed by
capacitance but current can pass through it and than it
leads by some deg. depent on capacitance.

Sir we have 12.5 MVA(110/11KV) transformer (Y-Y) connected,which tripped showing earth fault,when we charged transformer it stood OK ,but on connecting 11 KV feeders it tripped showing earth fault.our service engineers found that the B phase and R phase phase connecting to neutral broken from HV OLTC(on load tap changer),and R phase and Neutral is ok.Dissolved gas analysis shows that accetline content is high,tan delta value is 12.My dout is it is an internal fault of transformer,why REF or diffrential relay is not acted?
