S=VI

S=17684.5 at an angle of 135

In rectangular, that's = -1261.83+j1261.83

This is probably a stupid question, but I have

S= 17684.5

P= - 1261.83

Q=1261.83

power factor = -0.707

In the marking instructions, it has the real power (P) as 1261.83 instead of what I've got - NEGATIVE 1261.83

Also, the power factor in the marking instructions is 0.707, not negative 0.707. When I calculate the power factor by simply doing cos(135, I get a negative.

Do I just not include the negatives or what, I don't understand.
