Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would really appreciate some help with this problem(probably quite easy for anybody with Electrical Engineering experience).

Thanks in advance

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 415V, 50Hz, 3-phase supply is connected to a 3 phase load of 10kw with a power factor of 0.8 lagging. Find the magnitude of the line currents.

2. Relevant equations

P = VICos(power factor)

Total Power = 3 V(p)I(p)cos(power factor)

3. The attempt at a solution

Attempted the question using the equations above, except I obtained the wrong answer.

Correct answer = 17.39Amps
