Presentation Transcript

• Displacement Power Factor (Displacement Factor)

•  = Cosine of phase shift between fundamental component of line current and the associated phase voltage (ie IA and VAN)

• Accounts for proportion of fundamental current that does something useful.  = 1 is good,  = 0.5 is bad (50% of fundamental current does nothing useful)

• Distortion Factor

•  = RMS fundamental current/total RMS current

• Accounts for the proportion of RMS current that is due to harmonics.  = 1 is good (pure sinewave).  = 0.5 is bad (50% of RMS current is due to the harmonics)

• Power Factor

• pf = power delivered/total RMS volts * total RMS amps

• Tells us what proportion of the total apparent power (VA) represents useful power delivered to the load (Watts)

• pf=1 is good, pf = 0.5 is bad (have to supply 1000VA to get 500W for example)

• Relationship between quantities

• Assume voltage is undistorted compared to current – normally reasonable for a decent power system

• Then total RMS voltage = fundamental RMS voltage

Power factor = Displacement factor * Distortion factor

Note if the current is undistorted then  = 1 and Power factor = Displacement factor = Cosine of phase shift (as given in 1st year notes)
