## Why Power Transmission Cables & Lines are Loose on Electric Poles & Transmission Towers?

INTRODUCTION Transportation of people, goods and services today is no longer a problem as technology is fast growing. Distance is neither a barrier nor a problem. Just as people, goods and services are easily transported across a distant destination, ELECTRICITY is no different. Electricity can be transported over a long distance. But unlike goods, electricity requires a medium through which …

## Advantages of Power factor improvement and Correction

Advantages of Power factor improvement and Correction: Following are the merits and benefits of improvedPower factor; Increase in efficiency of system and devices Low Voltage Drop Reduction in size of a conductor and cable which reduces cost of the Cooper An Increase in available power Line Losses (Copper Losses) I2R is reduced Appropriate Size of Electrical Machines (Transformer, Generators etc) …

## Causes of low Power Factor

Causes of low Power Factor The main cause of low Power factor is Inductive Load. As in pure inductive circuit, Current lags 90° from Voltage, this large difference of phase angle between current and voltage causes zero power factor. Basically, all those circuit having Capacitance and inductance (except resonance circuit (or Tune Circuit) where inductive reactance = capacitive reactance …

Methods for Power Factor Improvement The following devices and equipment are used for Power Factor Improvement. Static Capacitor Synchronous Condenser Phase Advancer 1. Static Capacitor We know that most of the industries and power system loads are inductive that take lagging current which decrease the system power factor (See Disadvantages of Low Power factor) . For Power factor improvement purpose, …
