Abstract

In AC systems the power factor has very much importance. The cosine of the angle between voltage &
current is called as POWER FACTOR. Depending upon the nature of load the power factor is termed as LAGGING,
LEADING or UNITY. Lagging for inductive loads, leading for capacitive loads & unity for resistive loads. In
industries the motors operated are of inductive nature which has lagging power factor. The lagging power factor
causes poor voltage regulation, large copper losses etc. Hence it is important to have improved power factor for
efficient working of systems. Purpose of this project is to correction of power factor, so that efficiency of the
equipment can be increase.
