In a distribution system, in order to improve power factor, the synchronous capacitors are installed at the receiving end.
Description : Why capacitors are used to improve power factor?
Answer : Capacitors generate reactive power instead of that drawn from source which is required by inductive loads.so it reduce the reactive current which is drawn from source to be drawn from capacitor.This control in Electric bills cost.
Description : Can a synchronous condenser improve power factor?
Answer : Yes, synchronous condenser can improve power factor.
Description : How can we improve power factor using synchronous motor?
Answer : For high value of diversity factor, a power station of given installed capacity will be in a position to supply more number of consumers.
Answer : Power plant having maximum demand more than the installed rated capacity will have utilisation factor more than unity.
