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)
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.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 9:43 pm ad1c9bdddf
