EE 313 Example Power Problem A source, V S = 150 Vrms, operating at 60 Hz is connected to three loads, all of which are connected in parallel. The details of the loads are given below. Answer the following questions about this power system. Z 1 : P 1 = 25 kW with PF 1 =0.5 lagging Z 2 : P 2 = 18 kW and Q 2 =-12 kVAR Z 3 : I 3 =60 Arms and PF 3 = 0.75 lagging a) What is the impedance of each load? b) What is the phasor current flowing through each load? c) What is the real power delivered by the source? d) What is the complex power absorbed by each load?

Unformatted text preview: e) What is the power factor of the combined loads? f) What is the magnitude of the source current? g) If a corrective load is added to minimize the source current magnitude, what would this magnitude be? h) Design a corrective load to make the combined power factor equal to 0.952 lagging. What is the impedance of this load? What is the element value of this new load? What is the magnitude of the source current now?...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
