Power in AC Circuits

Introduction There are 2 fundamentals laws that are important in AC circuits o Ohms Law States that the current through a conductor btwn 2 points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the 2 points, and is inversely proportional to the resistance between them. Mathematical equation: V IR Where V I R o Kirchoffs Laws Kirchoffs Voltage Law States that the algebraic sum of all voltages around any closed loop is zero - potential difference in volts (V) - current in amperes (A) - resistance in ohms ()

Kirchoffs Current Law States that the algebraic sum of currents at a node is zero

AC Circuit Means voltage signal is in alternating current form (AC) that has positive & negative portions. Normally referred as sinusoidal form. General equation: V(t) = Vm sin t Where Vm f T - the maximum voltage - angular frequency in rad/s = 2f - supply frequency in Hz - period = 1/f

AC Signal

AC Signal

Phase o o o When capacitors or inductors are involved in an AC cct, the current & voltage do not peak at the same time. The period diff btwn the peaks expressed in degrees is said to be the phase difference. This phase relation is often represented graphically in a phasor diagram.

Phasor diagram between V and I

RMS Voltage o o o Stands for root-mean-square. In AC cct, current & voltages are generally stated as rms values instead of maximum values. It is the effective voltage that is utilized in practical or theoretical analysis given by:

Vrms

Vm 2

Example 1 An AC signal is given as V (t) = 141.4 sin 314t. Determine the following: a) Maximum voltage b) RMS voltage c) Frequency d) Period to complete 1 cycle e) Phase shift

Components of AC Circuit Ohms Law in AC Circuits o Modified to the form: V = I Z where V I Z - the effective or rms voltage values - the effective or rms current values - the impedance

3 main components o o o Resistor Inductor Capacitor R in Ohms () L in Henry (H) C in Farad (F)

Phasor diagram Current is in phase with voltage = v - i = 0 Therefore, v= i With v taken as reference point, the phasor diagram is shown below

Inductive Load o The impedance, Z consists of a resistor in series with an inductor i.e. Z = R + j XL

Where XL L f

Inductive Circuit

Phasor diagram Current lags voltage o When a voltage is applied to an inductor, it resists the change in current. Current builds up more slowly than the voltage, lagging it in time and phase. = v - i > 0

Capacitive Load o The impedance, Z consists of a resistor in series with a capacitor i.e. Z = R jXC

Where XC

= capacitive reactance () =

Capacitive Circuit

= capacitance (F)

Phasor diagram Current leads voltage o Since the voltage on a capacitor is directly proportional to the charge on it, the current must lead the voltage in time and phase to conduct charge to the capacitor plates and raise the voltage. = v - i < 0

Example 2 A resistance of 7.0 is connected in series with a pure inductance of 31.4mH and the circuit is connected to a 100V, 50Hz, sinusoidal supply. Calculate the circuit current & the phase angle.

Power in AC Circuits The behavior of AC machines & systems are often easier to understand by working with power, rather than working with voltages and currents Active, reactive & apparent power apply to steady-state AC circuits with sinusoidal waveforms only o o Cannot be used to describe transient (temporary) behaviour Cannot be used to describe DC circuits

Instantaneous Power in AC circuits o o The product of instantaneous voltage & current, unit in Watts (W) Given by: P = V I

Active Power, P o o o o The average value of the instantaneous power over one cycle of the voltage Also known as real power @ true power @ actual power. The effective power that does real work, unit in Watts (W) Given by: P = V I cos where = angle btwn V & I Since V = IZ, P can also be written as P = I2Z cos

Reactive Power, Q o o o o The circulating power in the circuit. Power which does no real work. Also known as the imaginary power, unit in volt-amperesreactive [var] Given by: Q = V I sin Q can also be written as Q = I2Z sin

Complex Power, S o o The product of the voltage across the load and the current through the load, unit in VA (volts-amperes) Given by: S = V I* S = (Vv)(I-i)* = (Vv)(I+ i ) = P + j Q = VI cos + j VI sin Apparent power the power that supplied to the load if phase angle diff btwn V & I are ignored Given by S = V I S can also be written as S = I2Z

o o o

Power Triangle o The relationship btwn S, P and Q can be represented graphically by a power triangle.

Where S2 = P2 + Q2

For inductive load, since > 0, Q = VI sin + = +ve Q For capacitive load, since < 0, Q = VI sin - = -ve Q Based on the discussion earlier, the summary is as follows: Resistive Load I is in phase with V = v - i = 0 Q is zero pf is unity Inductive Load I lags V = v - i > 0 Q is +ve pf is lagging Capacitive Load I leads V = v - i < 0 Q is -ve pf is leading

Example 3 Figure below shows an AC voltage source supplying power to a load with impedance Z = 20-30 . Calculate the current, I supplied to the load, the power factor of the load, and the real, reactive, apparent, and complex power supplied to the load.

Power Factor o The ratio of the active power P to the apparent power S

P cos S

The value lies between 0 and 1 A power factor of 1 or unity is the goal of any electric utility company. If less than 1, the utility company has to supply more current to the user for a given amount of power use. This will cause more line losses. Larger capacity equipment is required.

o o

An industrial facility will be charged a penalty if its power factor is less than 1. In West Malaysia, minimum p.f specified by TNB is 0.85

Power Factor Correction o o o It is the process of adjusting the characteristics of electric loads in order to improve power factor so that it is closer to unity (1). Can be improved by connecting a capacitor bank in parallel with the load. Connecting a capacitor bank in parallel with the load means to inject reactive power to the system.

Without capacitor, I= IL

From phasor diagram for inductive load, the power factor is lagging. When capacitor is connected in parallel with the load, 2 < 1 Therefore, cos 2 > cos 1 i.e. p.f.2 > p.f.1

From diagram:

QC Q1 Q2

o The reactive power is given by:

VC2 QC VC2C XC

o The capacitance value can then be calculated as below:

Example 4 A single phase circuit is depicted in the following figure. The supply rms mode is 120V with 60Hz frequency. Calculate the corresponding capacitance value that is needed to improve the circuit power factor to 0.95 lagging. Show the answer through the aid of phasor diagram.
