# What is the meaning of load factor?

# Why is the power factor at no load less than full load?

That's not possible. The power factor is related to the phase difference between voltage and current on the line. "No load" means 'no current', so power factor is … meaningless with no load. If you see a power factor, there must be a load, even if it's some device that you're not aware of.

# What is power factor what is its effect on load?

Power factor is the real power (watts) divided by apparent power (the vector sum of real and reactive power). Reactive elements (things that have inductance or capacitance) ca…use phase shifts between voltage applied to them and current passing through them. This phase shift is a result of these elements holding power, then releasing it. Since these elements are not actually using power, this does not show up on your electric bill (unless you are billed on VARs as well as watts). Although they don't use real power, these reactive elements do cause "extra" current to flow, which the power company must supply. If this current is excessive (so you have a very low power factor) the power company must install oversized equipment to meet your demand; this means an added expense for them, with no payback on your electric bill. This is why power companies will often require a certain power factor be met, or bill you extra per kWh of use. Note power factor is a result of the load, not the other way around (a better question might be what is the a load's effect on power factor).

# Are load factor and power factor the same?

No Load factor is average power consumption rate divided by peak power consumption rate over a period of time. Power companies like customers who have very steady consumptio…n rates ......Load factors approaching 1 Power factor is true power / apparent power (kW/kV.A) and is a measure of how efficiently a customer's load consumes power. Certain types of electrical loads consume power more efficiently ( resistive element heating ) and they have a Power factor approaching 1. Other types of load such as old inductions motor are quite wasteful consumers of power and the utility has to provide more current ( amperage ) for the load to convert to real power

# What is power factor at full load?

Wrong question. It can only be determined by the parameters.

# Why the power factor improves with the load?

Power factor doesn't necessarily 'improve with the load', but it is determined by the load.

# What is the meaning of load?

a LOAD is generally related to energy consumption. mechanical, electrical gas power, etc. a LOADED truck consumes energy to move the load. a loaded motor consumes more e…nergy than a free spinning one.

# What are the factors affecting webpage loading?

Web page loading speed is determined by several factors that include: 1. The speed and reliability of the web host. 2. The file size of the images on the website. 3. The c…leanliness of the code for the website. 4. How much information is being pulled from external sources and databases. 5. The speed of the visitor's internet connection.

# What is the power factor of heating load?

1.0 of its a resistive element providing the heating. Something else if its not resistive. An reverse cycle A/C system would be 0.80-0.90 for example.

# What power plant has high load factor?

Diesel Engine has high load factor

# Can the power factor of a load be 1?

A power factor of one means that the current and voltage waveforms across the load are in phase. This happens only when the load is pure resistance.

# What is the meaning of 'plant load factor'?

Answering "What is the meaning of 'plant load factor'

# How do you calculate load factor of gear box?

K Factor Also called an Overhung Load Factor. A constant used to modify the overhung load rating of a gearbox based on the type of load applied on the shaft. Use the K factor …either to increase the calculated overhung load, or to reduce the gearbox overhung load rating.

# What is the power factor of an inductive load?

The power factor for any reactive load, inductive or capacitive, is the cosine of the phase angle between voltage and current. It is also the ratio of volt-amps over watts. We… call it a lagging power factor if it is inductive, and a leading power factor if it is capacitive.

# Why you do diveristy factor in electrical loads?

Diversity allows for the fact that not all loads operate at the same time. So, when you are calculating the load in order to determine the size of a transformer, or cable, you… apply a diversity factor to the total load which brings it down to a smaller value (after diversity maximum demand). Diversity factors are laid down in the appropriate regulations.
