EECE 519 Homework - AC power 1. A residential electric power monitoring system rated for 120 V (rms), 60 Hz source registers power consumption of 1.2 kW, with a power factor of 0.8 lagging. Find (a) The rms current (b) The phase angle (c) The system impedance (d) The system resistance. Ans: (a) I rms = 12 . 5 A (b) θ = 36 . 87 o (c) Z = 9 . 6 6 36 . 87 o Ω (d) R = 7 . 68Ω 2. An electrical load operates at 60 Hz, 120V (rms). the load absorbs an average

    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.

    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.
