Engineers often require power factor calculator especially when they are working on site. This is a handy calculator for calculating power factor making it easier for engineers.
Power Factor Calculator
How to use the calculator?
- For this calculator, note down the values of kW of an equipment.
- Note down kVA. If you do not have kVA ratings of equipment then you can use this calculator ‘Volt-ampere Calculator‘ to find it.
- Enter the values in respective field.
- The calculator would show automatically the calculated value.
How to calculate power factor?
You can find power factor with help of following formula:
Power Factor cos Φ = kW / kVA
kW = True power
kVA = Apparent power
Note that, normally on motor name plate, kVA ratings may not be mentioned. So use the ‘Volt-ampere Calculator‘ to find kVA.
