of Required Kvar to Raise Power Factor
web page can be used to calculate the kvar required to raise the
power factor of a constant kw (real power) load. The initial power
factor, desired power factor, and load kw are required for the calculation.
A negative power factor is interpreted as a leading power factor.
A positive power factor is considered a lagging power factor. A
negative kvar value should be interpreted as capacitive kvar that
shall be removed. A positive kvar value should be interpreted as
capacitive kvar that shall be added.
