Calculate S, the complex power of a load (in rectangular form), given the following data:
Vrms = 220 V, P = 1kW, magnitude of Z = 40 ohm (inductive).
a. S = 2000 - j150.3 VA
b. S = 1000 + j681.2 VA
c. S = 2000 - j681.2 VA
d. S = 1000 - j150.3 VA
The answer to this question is given in the attached Word file. Thank you for using BrainMass.
From the load prospective, we have the following relationship between voltage, current, and load impedance:
From the question, we know Vrms = 220V
|Z| = 40 Ohm ...
This solution contains contains step-by-step calculations to determine the complex power of the load using the concepts of apparent power and complex power.
