(b) To change the motor’s power factor to 0.8 leading, its field current must be increased. Since the power supplied to the load is independent of the field current level, an increase in field current increases E A while keeping the distance E A sin δ constant. This increase in E A changes the angle of the current

I A , eventually causing it to reach a power factor of 0.8 leading.
