Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

Answer This question makes no sense. Please clarify and check your terminology.

With 15 HP of power it would be worth having a capacitor bank to correct the power factor if:

(i) your load contains a large percentage of appliances with a poor power factor e.g. induction motors


(ii) your power company is loading the charge for your kWh usage because of your poor power factor.

If those two items don't apply to you, it isn't worth it.

How much power of capacitor bank have to install for 100KVA?

If you want 100kVAR from a capacitor bank, you must install a 100kVAR capacitor bank. If what you're asking is related to how much capacitance it will take to offset a poor po

What is the use of capacitor bank?

In high voltage situations, a capacitor bank stores a charge of electric, similar to a battery, so that when a sudden large draw is put on the line, thus causing the voltage t

Why you are using capacitor banks to improve power factor?

A poor power factor is caused by inductive loads or electronic devices. These loads cause excess current to flow in the circuit reducing the efficiency. Inductive devices are

Why is use of capacitor in power system?

A capacitor in a power system is used 1.) to increase effective power factor, and 2.) to increase stability in response to transient load changes. Since the category is Elect

Why capacitor bank using reeactor?

Series reactors may be used in switching in capacitor banks. These are used to minimize the transient voltage spikes on the system resulting from switching in a capacitor bank

What is the use of a capacitor bank?

A capacitor can store electrical charge, and a bank of them could store alarge charge. We sometimes set up a capacitor bank to store a large electrical charge for certain phys

How much electricity does a 1000 watt hps light use?

Ok so if you guys thought about it it should be easy to calculate  it's simple math.   If your trying to find out how many Kw/h your going to use.   First figure out

How capacitor banks maintains the power factor?

  Capacitor bank is use to control the power factor of the load, because there is many inductive load in the circuit which is the cause of the lagging P.F, so we use the c

Why you install capacitor bank in electrical room?

  Capacitor banks are installed in the electrical room to improve the power factor which is related to the inductive load caused by motors etc .   The capacitors create

Why are capacitors used with electric motors?

Capacitors are used with single phase induction motors in order to achieve a rotating magnetic field, in a second winding, such that an initial torque can be imposed on the ro

Control diagrame of a capacitor bank and why you use capacitor banks?

  ----   Capacitor banks used to improve power factor(lagging) of a circuit::   This is necessary since it causes saving in power and electricity bill in following w

How much electricity is needed to use 1 HP electric water pump?

1 Hp is about 746watts. Depending on how effecient your motor is and design of the pump housing, you're looking at 120V at 6.25amps at least. When the   motor starts up, th

How much electricity will a 15 Hp motor consume in 1 hour?

One horsepower is equal to 746 watts. 15 horsepower is equal to 15 x 746 = 11190 watts.   Answer   You will need to know the machine's efficiency, because the input
