I'm trying to calculate the power factor of a three phase synchronous generator(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

torque angle = arctan^-1 (impedance)

(sin torque angle/ current x voltage)

90 - torque angle - sin = XYZ

power factor is cosine XYZ

Is this the correct calculation to use?
