The thirst for new sources of energy is unquenchable, but we seldom realize that we are wasting a part of the electrical energy every day due to the lagging power factor in the inductive loads we use. Hence there is an urgent need to avoid this wastage of energy. Before getting into the details of Power factor correction, lets just brush our knowledge about the term "power factor". In simple words power factor basically states how far the energy provided [...]
