Steady State Power Calculation

Section 10.1-10.4

Use current as point of reference

- For purely resistive circuits , θv= θi

θv= θi

(all the electric energy is dissipated in the form of thermal energy)

- For purely inductive circuits , θv= θi+90 deg

θv= θi+90 deg

(Q is 1 VAR)

Volt-Amp Reactive

(Voltage leads current by 90 deg)

(No transformation of energy from electric energy to nonelectric form)

- For purely inductive circuits , θi= θv+90 deg

θi= θv+90 deg

(Q is -1 VAR)

Volt-Amp Reactive

(Current leads voltage by 90 deg)

(No transformation of energy from electric energy to nonelectric form)

(power factor angel)

Knowing the power factor does not tell you the value of power factor

angle.

We need to use descriptive language:

Lagging power factor: current lags voltage. (most appliances such as

lighting fixtures and washing machine…etcoperate at a lagging power

factor. We usually want to operate a power factor of 1.

2. Leading power factor: current leads voltage.

A 120 V, 100W lamp has a resistance of 1202/100=144 Ohms

We can use a capacitor in parallel of L1 and L2 to correct

Power. We would ideally like to have a power factor of 1.
