75 HP Motor PF=0.75 208 Volts 60 Hz POWER FACTOR CORRECTION P=75 HP x 746 W = 55.950 kW S=55.950 kW/0.75 = 74.600 kVA Q=74.600 kVA x sin 41.41 deg. = 49.3426 kVAR's Existing installation After PF correction 75 HP Motor PF=0.75 208 Volts 60 Hz C=? What value of capacitor is needed to increase the power factor to 0.78? P=75 HP x 746 W = 55.950 kW S=55.950 kW/0.78 = 71.7308 kVA
