**Active, Reactive, Apparent and Complex Power. Simple explanation with formulas.
**

(1) Real Power: (P)

Alternative words used for Real Power (Actual Power, True Power, Watt-full Power,

Useful Power, Real Power, and Active Power)

In a DC Circuit, power supply to the DC load is simply the product of Voltage across the

load and Current flowing through it i.e., P = V I. because in DC Circuits, there is no

concept of phase angle between current and voltage. In other words, there is no Power

factor in DC Circuits.

But the situation is Sinusoidal or AC Circuits is more complex because of phase

difference between Current and Voltage. Therefore average value of power (Real

Power) is P = VI Cosθ is in fact supplied to the load.

In AC circuits, When circuit is pure resistive, then the same formula used for power as

used in DC as P = V I.

You may also read about Power Formulas in DC, AC Single Phase and and AC Three

Phase Circuits.

Real Power formulas:

P=VI (In DC circuits)

P = VI Cosθ (in Single phase AC Circuits)

P = √3 VL IL Cosθ or (in Three Phase AC Circuits)

P = 3 VPh IPh Cosθ

P = √ (S2 – Q2)or

P =√ (VA2 – VAR2) or

Real or True power = √ (Apparent Power2– Reactive Power2) or

kW = √ (kVA2 – kVAR2)

(2) Reactive Power: (Q)

Also known as (Use-less Power, Watt less Power)

The powers that continuously bounce back and forth between source and load is known

as reactive Power (Q)

Power merely absorbed and returned in load due to its reactive properties is referred to

as reactive power

The unit of Active or Real power is Watt where 1W = 1V x 1 A.

Reactive power represent that the energy is first stored and then released in the form of

magnetic field or electrostatic field in case of inductor and capacitor respectively.

Reactive power formulas: Q = V I Sinθ Reactive Power=√ (Apparent Power2– True power2) VAR =√ (VA2 – P2) kVAR = √ (kVA2 – kW2) (3) Apparent Power: (S) The product of voltage and current if and only if the phase angle differences between current and voltage are ignored. Total power in an AC circuit. I. but in inductive or capacitive circuit. It is the product of Voltage and Current without phase angle The unit of Apparent power (S) VA i.m. Apparent power formulas: S=VI Apparent Power = √ (True power2 + Reactive Power2) kVA = √kW2 + kVAR2 AlsoNote that. (when Reactances exist) then apparent power is greater than real or true power. In more simple words. When the circuit is pure resistive. the product of the r.s voltage and the r. VAR where 1 VAR = 1V x 1A. in Inductor or Capacitor. The unit of reactive power is Volt-Ampere reactive. Click image to enlarge . 1VA = 1V x 1A. Inductor absorbs the reactive power and dissipates in the form of magnetic field Capacitor absorbs the reactive power and dissipates in the form of electric or electrostatic filed ∴ These all quantities trigonometrically related to each other as shown in below figure. both dissipated and absorbed/returned is referred to asapparent power The combination of reactive power and true power is called apparent power In an AC circuit.m. then apparent power is equal to real or true power.e. Resistor absorbs the real power and dissipates in the form of heat and light.s current is called apparent power.Reactive power is given by Q = V I Sinθ which can be positive (+ve) for inductive.e. negative (-Ve) for capacitive load. how much magnetic or electric field made by 1A x 1V is called the unit of reactive power.
