# What is the relationship between inductance and power factor in an ac circuit?

for the purely inductance power,the power factor is zero because true power equals zero.here the power triangle would look like a vertical,because the adjacent (true power) side would have zero length....Engr. olunloyo university of lagos ,Nigeria

### How can a tuned RC circuit improve the power factor of an inductive motor circuit?

The RC circuit can reduce the phase shift between the voltage and current in the power line. The phase shift is caused by the inductance of the motor. The phase shift between the voltage and current in the power line causes problems due to the presence of so called imaginary current or power that does no work but must be supplied by the power source.

### Why in coil power factor is low?

A coil of wire acts as an inductor; it will have a very small resistance, and a relatively large inductance. Power factor is effectively the resistance divided by the impedance (made up of resistance and inductance), so the larger the inductance relative to the resistance, the lower the power factor will be.

### What is the function of a capacitor in a fluorescent light fitting?

A capacitor is used to improve the power factor of the lamp. More details To prevent the lamp from taking too much current a fluorescent lamp has to have a choke, which has magnetic inductance. The inductance has a negative impact on the power factor of the (the ratio between apparent power and real power taken by the lamp) - i.e. the power factor is reduced - so a capacitor is used to compensate for…

### What is the difference between Kilovolt Ampere and Kilowatt?

A kilowatt is an unit of true power in an AC circuit -as measured by a wattmeter. A kilovolt ampere is an unit of apparent power in an AC circuit, which is the product of the voltage across a load by the current through it. The relationship between the two is: kilowatt = (kilovolt ampere) x (power factor of load)

### Why inductance should be low in decoupling capacitors?

Inductance should be low in decoupling capacitors because the purpose of the decoupling capacitor is to absorb voltage transients due to suddent shifts in current due to switching activities, such as in a logic gate or high speed op-amp. If significant inductance were present, the power pin on the device would be allowed to dip or rise in voltage, potentially destabilizing the circuit. As circuit switch time becomes less and less, decoupling becomes more and…

### What does a strength curve give you?

relates to any exercise analyze the components of the strength production has seven factors FACTOR ONE: The Angle of "Q" FACTOR TWO: The Angle of "A" FACTOR THREE: Force FACTOR FOUR: Time FACTOR FIVE: The Relationship Between Time and Force FACTOR SIX: The Relationship Between Limit Strength and Fmax FACTOR SEVEN: The Amortization Phase

### What is the unit of quality factor of RLC series circuit?

The selectivity or sharpness of series resonant circuit is measured by quality factor or Q factor.It is defined as the ratio of the voltage across the coil or capcitor to the applied voltage.In other words it refers to the sharpness of tuning at resonance. Q = voltage across L or C ( in volts) / applied voltage ( in volts ) Q = 1/ R * ( L/C)^ 0.5 Q is just a mere number…
