    How do Capacitors and Inductors Add/Remove VARS in AC?

    Sure, VAR is Volt Ampere Reactance, which is a measurement of reactive power.

    How do Capacitors and Inductors Add/Remove VARS in AC?

    To my understanding, capacitors cause the current to lead the voltage which adds VARS to the circuit and inductors cause the current to lag behind the voltage which removes VARS (in AC circuits). Also, it is my understanding that VARS increase voltage. I work for one of the largest utilities...
