AVERAGE POWER

Average Power Average Power, in watts (W), is the average of instantaneous power over one period

Average Power Resistive load (R) absorbs power all the time.

From derivation, we notice that the real power is or and also the reactive power or

Real or Average Power The real power is the average power delivered to a load. Measured in watts (W) The only useful power The actual power dissipated by the load

Reactive Power The reactive power, Q is the imaginary parts of complex power. The unit of Q is volt-ampere reactive (VAR). It represents a lossless interchange between the load and the source Q = 0 for resistive load (unity pf) Q < 0 for capacitive load (leading pf) Q > 0 for inductive load (lagging pf)

Apparent Power The apparent power is the product of rms values of voltage and current Measured in volt-amperes or VA Magnitude of the complex power

Power Factor Power factor is the cosine of the phase difference between voltage and current. It is also cosine of the angle of the load impedance.

Power Factor The range of pf is between zero and unity.
For a purely resistive load, the voltage and current are in phase so that v- i = 0 and pf = 1, the apparent power is equal to average power. For a purely reactive load, v- i = 90 and pf = 0, the average power is zero.

POWER FACTOR CORRECTION

Power Factor Correction
The process of increasing the power factor without altering the voltage or current to the original load. It may be viewed as the addition of a reactive element (usually capacitor) in parallel with the load in order to make the power factor closer to unity.

Power Factor Correction
Normally, most loads are inductive. Thus power factor is improved or corrected by installing a capacitor in parallel with the load. In circuit analysis, an inductive load is modeled as a series combination of an inductor and a resistor.

Implementation of Power Factor Correction

Calculation If the original inductive load has apparent power S1, then
P = S1 cos 1 and Q1 = S1 sin 1 = P tan 1 If we desired to increased the power factor from cos1 to cos2 without altering the real power, then the new reactive power is Q2 = P tan 2 The reduction in the reactive power is caused by the shunt capacitor is given by QC = Q1 – Q2 = P (tan 1 - tan 2)

Calculation The value of the required shunt capacitance is determined by the formula Notice that the real power, P dissipated by the load is not affected by the power factor correction because the average power due to the capacitor is zero

Solution If the pf = 0.8 then, cos1 = 0.8  1 = 36.87o
where 1 is the phase difference between the voltage and current. We obtained the apparent power from the real power and the pf as shown below. The reactive power is

Solution When the pf raised to 0.95, cos2 = 0.95  2 = 18.19o
The real power P has not changed. But the apparent power has changed. The new value is The new reactive power is

Solution The difference between the new and the old reactive power is due to the parallel addition of the capacitor to the load. The reactive power due to the capacitor is The value of capacitance added is

Solution If the pf = 0.85 then, cos1 = 0.85  1 = 31.79o
where 1 is the phase difference between the voltage and current. We obtained the apparent power from the reactive power and the pf as shown below. The real power is

Solution When the pf raised to 1 (unity), cos2 = 1  2 = 0o
The real power P has not changed. But the apparent power has changed. The new value is The new reactive power is

Solution The difference between the new and the old reactive power due to the parallel addition of the capacitor to the load. The reactive power due to the capacitor is The value of capacitance is
