## Average power in ac circuit: The power factor & its importance?

Power Factor (PF) play an important role in average power dissipation in an ac circuit. PF leads to the concept of three different real, reactive and apparent power, which …

## Reactance and Impedance of capacitor and inductor in AC circuit

Capacitor and inductor oppose current in AC circuit because of inertia of electron motion, which is called capacitive and inductive reactance respectfully.

## Capacitor in series and parallel combination: The capacitor connection

Capacitors can be connected in series and parallel to achieve the desired capacitance. The capacitance of series connection decreases and that of parallel connection increases.
