Re: power factor & frequency

Jacques Schonek

The Power Factor is the ratio of the active power (kW) to the apparent power (kVA). PF = kW/kVA.

The is no mention of frequency in this formula.

However, as explained by Olivier, for a given load, the power factor will vary depending on the frequency, because the impedance and the apparent power will vary.

May I ask you why are you asking this question?
