Evaluation of Percentage Wasted Power in Electrical Loads with Constructed Power Factor Correction Equipment

Afolabi O.M

Abstract: Fixed capacitive low power factor correction measurements was done to calculate percentage wasted power. The output of the nine operational amplifier voltage comparator controlled stabilizer was connected to a fixed CBB61; 450V 2uF AC run capacitor unto which each load was connected and computation of apparent power, power factor and percentage wasted power were made. It was found that very high percentage of required real power was wasted when power factor was uncorrected in electrical appliances studied. 52% of power was wasted in three laptops combination that reduced to 8.6% after CPF compare to 36.5% when 3 loads comprising of a laptop, printer and electric fan was used that was reduced to 3.3%. Minimum power was wasted in Philips Elance 3100, Electric iron with 32.3% when the power factor was uncorrected and 3.2% when power factor was corrected.
