Power Factor Correction - Capacitor Sizing wrt Motor Speed

  1. Jun 3, 2014 #1
    Please have a look at the following links:

    (Table 3)


    - For power factor correction, why would the capacitor size (kvar) depend upon an induction motor's speed; does a motor with larger number of poles have a lower power factor?

    - When power factor correction capacitors are used in industries, does a capacitor's power factor rating specify the total reactive power (Q) supplied for all three phases or is it Q supplied per phase?
