It is observed from above that
(i) When 0 = 0°, load pf =1, power = 'Id V L l L , Wj =VlIl COS 30 = 0.866 V L I L . Also,
W 2 = 0.866 V L I L = Wj. Therefore, when both wattmeter readings are equal, load pf is unity.
W,
(ii) When 0 = 30, load pf = 0.866, power = 1.5 V L I L , Wj = V L 1^ and W2 = 0.5 V L 1^  — This
shows
that when one wattmeter reading is double the other wattmeter reading, load pf is 0.866 lagging.
(Hi) When 0 = 60°, load pf = 0.5, power = 0.866 V L J L , Wj = 0.866 Vj, I L and W 2 . 0. Therefore,
when
one wattmeter reads zero, other wattmeter records the entire power and load pf is 0.5 lagging.
(iv) When 0 > 60°, load pf < 0.5, Wj reads positive whereas W 2 reads negative. This shows that
when
one wattmeter reads negative, load pf is less than 0.5 lagging. Under such a condition, for noting down
(v) When 0 = 90°, load pf = 0, power = 0, Wj = 0.5 V L I L and W2 =  0.5 I L . So when both
wattmeter
readings are equal but one is positive and the other is negative, the load pf is zero.
Note. Out of the two wattmeter readings, the higher reading is taken as positive and the other
reading as W 2 ; except when pf = 1.
