    What size capacitor(s) is required to correct air conditioner system power factor from 0.63 to 0.99? Is it installed in series or parallel? (installed to switch with A/C cycle)
    Given:
    Load amps = 12 amps
    Voltage = 242 VAC
    main Meter power factor A/C off = .99
    main Meter power factor A/C on = .63

    Load is at the end of 300' sub feeder wiring run.
