Sum

A resistance and a capacitor connected in series across a 250V supply draws 5A at 50Hz. When frequency is increased to 60Hz, it draws 5.8A. Find the values of R & C. Also find active power and power factor in both cases.

Solution

𝐼1=5𝐴  V = 250V   ð‘“1=50𝐻𝑧   ð‘“2=60𝐻𝑧   ð¼2=5.8𝐴
(1) Values of R and C.

For 𝑓1=50𝐻𝑧   ð‘1=`V/I_1=250/5`= 50Ω

`Z_1^2=(R^2+(1/(2pif_1c))^2)=(R^2+(1/(100piC))^2)`

`R^2+(1/(100piC))^2=2500`…………….(1)

For 𝑓1=60𝐻𝑧   `Z_2=V/I_2=250/5.8` = 43.1Ω

`Z_2^2=(R^2+1/(2pif_1c))=(R^2+(1/(100piC))^2)`

`R^2+(1/(120piC))^2`=1857.9Ω …………….(2)

From (1) and (2) we get,

R = 19.96Ω C = 69.4𝝁𝑭

(2) Power draw in the both cases.
𝑃1= 𝐼12𝑅=52×19.96 = 499w    𝑃2= 𝐼22𝑅=5.82×19.96 = 671.45w
𝑷𝟏=𝟒𝟗𝟗𝒘 and 𝑷𝟐= 671.45w

(3) Power factor in both cases:-
P1=VI1cosφ1
499=250×5×cos𝜑1 => cos𝜑1=0.3992
𝝋𝟏=𝟔𝟔.𝟒𝟕𝟏°
P2=VI2cosφ2
671.45=250×5.8×cos𝜑2 => cos𝜑2=0.463
𝝋𝟏=𝟔𝟐.𝟒𝟏𝟒𝟔°
