In this animated and interactive object, learners examine why the voltage produced by an AC drive must be increased when its frequency is increased due to inductive reactance.
Students read an introduction to inductive reactance and view examples.
Learners read about the concepts of true power, reactive power, and apparent power, and are introduced to the power factor formula. A short quiz completes the activity.
Students read an explanation of power factor in a power distribution and how it can be improved by using a power factor correction capacitor bank. A brief quiz completes the activity.
