Dear all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have one 22KW motor.

I want to know how much Kvar i need to install for it.

According to my information, i need to check no load current of motor (it is taking 10 ampere at no load), and than take 90% of no load current (90% of 10 ampere is 9 ampere), so install capacitor that can take maximum 9 ampere current (6 kvar capacitor takes 9 ampere current).

So 6 Kvar is suitable to install in 22KW motor.

Am i calculating in correct way?
