Discussion

𝑟𝑒𝑎𝑙 𝑝𝑜𝑤𝑒𝑟

Power factor =

𝑎𝑝𝑝𝑎𝑟𝑒𝑛𝑡 𝑝𝑜𝑤𝑒𝑟

Real power is the capacity of the circuit for performing work in a particular time. Apparent power is

the product of the current and voltage of the circuit. The apparent power in a system can be greater

than the real power due to the following reasons;

Energy stored in the load and returned to the source.

A non-linear load that distorts the wave shape of the current drawn from the source.

Therefore, the power factor of any system typically takes a value between 0 and 1.

When the power factor is 1, all the energy supplied by the source is consumed by the load. But

when the power factor is less than 1, part of the energy supplied by the source is stored and returned

back to the source; inductive loads will absorb part of the energy supplied by the source and store it

in its magnetic field, and capacitive loads will store it in its electric field. Therefore, when the

power factor is less than 1, more current is required to deliver the same amount of useful energy.

Low-power-factor loads increase losses in the power distribution system and result in increased

energy costs.

Electric utility providers require that industrial and commercial customers maintain the power

factors of their respective loads within specified limits or be subject to additional charges. They also

must maintain a high power factor on their distribution system for efficiency. They will typically

bill customers for a low power factor or they may bill on kVA demand, which is also affected by

power factor. Most utilities that bill a power factor penalty require a user to maintain a 95% Power

Factor to avoid penalty.

It is often possible to adjust the power factor of a system to very near unity. This practice is known

as power factor correction and is achieved by switching in or out banks of inductors or capacitors.

(2) The usefulness of shunt capacitors in improving power factor of load

Inductive components of a power system draw a lagging reactive power from the supply. It lags by

90o to the active power. The capacitive component of the power system leads by 90o to the active

power. The directions of the above two components oppose each other.

Whenever an inductive load is connected to the transmission line, power factor lags because of

lagging load current. To compensate, a shunt capacitor is connected which draws current leading

the source voltage. The net result is improvement in power factor.

Consider a load with a lagging power factor cosϕ1. This will consume an active power P1 and a

reactive power Q1 as shown in the figure.

If the power factor is to be improved to a new value, cosϕ2, greater than cosϕ1, then a certain

amount of leading reactive power Qc must be added. This is usually done by the use of shunt

capacitors.

ϕ2 < ϕ1

cosϕ2 > cosϕ1

∴ The power factor has improved by adding shunt capacitors

(3) The effects of series and shunt capacitances

Series Connection:

This is not a very common method of connecting capacitors. In this method, the voltage regulation

is high, but it has many disadvantages. They are,

Because of the series connection, in a short circuit condition the capacitor should be able to

withstand the high current.

Due to the series connection and the inductivity of the line there can be a resonance occurring at

a certain capacitive value. This will lead to very low impedance and may cause very high

currents to flow through the lines.

Shunt Connection:

This is the most common method of connection. . The capacitor is connected in parallel to the unit.

The voltage rating of the capacitor is usually the same as or a little higher than the system voltage.

(4) Other methods which are in use to improve the power factor of transmission lines

Synchronous Motor

An unloaded synchronous motor can be used to improve the power factor. It is started and

connected to the electrical network. It operates at full leading power factor and puts apparent

power onto the network as required to support a system’s voltage or to maintain the system power

factor at a specified level. The condenser’s installation and operation are identical to large electric

motors. Its principal advantage is the ease with which the amount of correction can be adjusted; it

behaves like an electrically variable capacitor.

Filters

If there are harmonics in the waveform caused by switched mode power supplies, the capacitors

are not connected directly to the supply lines. The simplest way to control the harmonic current is

to use a filter. It is possible to design a filter that passes current only at line frequency (e.g. 50 or

60 Hz). This filter removes the harmonic current, which means that the non-linear device now

looks like a linear load. At this point the power factor can be brought to near unity, using

capacitors or inductors as required. This filter requires large-value high-current inductors,

however, which are bulky and expensive.
