Power Circuit &Electromagnetic (EET 221/3 - Software Version) Laboratory Module EXPERIMENT 1 TITLE: POWER IN AC CIRCUITS OBJECTIVES 1) To determine the active, reactive and apparent power supplied to an inductive load by using measurements of circuit currents and voltages. 2) To improve the power factor. EQUIPMENTS EMS Mobile Workstation Model 8110, Resistive Load Model 8311, Inductive Load Model 8321, Capacitive Load Model 8331, Power Supply Model 8821 and Data Acquisition Interface Model 9062. INTRODUCTION The apparent power supplied to a load equals the product of the load voltage and current. In ac circuits, apparent power is always greater than active power when the load contains reactance, because reactive power must be supplied by the source. The reactive power may be inductive or capacitive, but in most electromechanical devices it will be inductive because of the inductance of the coil in transformers and motors. The formula for determining reactive power in an ac circuit is Q = √ S2 – P2 Where Q = reactive power in vars, S = apparent power in VA, P = active power in W. When the phase angle Φ between the voltage and current is known, active power can be determined from the following formula: P = EI cos Φ = S cos Φ In ac circuits where the voltage and current are sine waves, the terms cos Φ is called the power factor and it equals the ratio of active power to apparent power, P/S. The actual value of the power factor depends on how much the current and voltage are out-of-phase. If E and I are in phase (purely resistive circuit), meaning phase angle Φ is O°, then cos Φ = 1 and the active power equals the product EI (apparent power). When the phase angle between current and voltage is 90° (purely reactive circuit), cos Φ = 0, therefore the active power is zero. When a circuit contains both resistance and reactance, the phase angle Φ lies between 0° and ± 90°, depending on whether circuit reactance is inductive or capacitive, cos Φ has a value between 0 and 1, and the active power equals a fraction of the apparent power. KOLEJ UNIVERSITI KEJURUTERAAN UTARA MALAYSIA – Exp.1 (Revision 1) 1 Power Circuit &Electromagnetic (EET 221/3 - Software Version) Laboratory Module Power distribution analysis of ac circuits can be simplified using the power triangle technique and Figure 1-1 shows how P, Q and S are related. The angle between the active power axis (x-axis) and the hypotenuse of the triangle corresponds to the phase angle Φ. Inductive reactive power is drawn in a +y direction and capacitive reactive power is drawn in a –y direction. Certain texts use a convention for inductive and capacitive reactive power opposite to the one used here. Inductive power is shown as a negative vector quantity because inductive current lags the voltage across the inductor, and capacitive power is drawn as a positive vector quantity since capacitive current leads the voltage. Figure 1-1 The Power Triangle AC motors draw inductive reactive power from the ac power supply to create the magnetic field which they require. In addition, ac motors absorb active power, most of which is converted to mechanical power and dissipate the remainder as heat. The reactive power travels back and forth between the motor and the ac power supply and it does no useful work other than creating the magnetic field for the motor. If a capacitor is placed in parallel with the motor and its value adjusted so that the capacitive reactive power exactly equals inductive reactive power, the negative reactive power of the capacitor will cancel out the positive reactive power of the motor. In fact the reactive power will travel back and forth between the motor and the capacitor instead of traveling back and forth between the motor and the ac power supply. The ac power supply will no longer have to supply reactive power, which will result in a large reduction in the current the motor draws from the power supply. Adding capacitive reactance in this way to lower the current (the current drawn from an ac power source) is called power factor correction and leads to improved line regulation. Also, this allows smaller diameter wire to be used for the transmission lines. The power factor of an ac motor by itself is usually quite low, often below 0.7, but once the capacitor/motor combination is in place, the power factor is substantially improved. With the proper choice of capacitance, the power factor will be close to unity.

Do not make or modify any banana jack connections with the power on unless otherwise specified! 1. Install the Power Supply, Data Acquisition Interface, Resistive Load, Inductive Load and Capacitive Load modules in the EMS Workstation. 2. Make sure that the main switch of the Power Supply is set to the O (OFF) position, and the voltage control knob is turned fully counter clockwise. Set the voltmeter select switch to the 4-N position. 3. Set up the circuit shown in Figure 1-2. The RL section of the circuit simulates the load of a single-phase ac motor. Connect all three sections of the Resistive and Inductive Load modules in parallel and set R and XL to the values given. Connect I1 and E1 as shown to measure the circuit current and voltage. 4. Ensure that the DAI LOW POWER INPUT is connected to the main Power Supply. 5. Display the Metering application. 6. Turn on the main Power Supply and set the 24V-AC power switch to the I (ON) position. Adjust the voltage control to obtain the value of ES given in Figure 1-2. 7. Measure the load voltage and current and the active power consumed by the circuit. Note the results, and then turn off the power. Figure 1-2 RL Load to Simulate an AC Motor. KOLEJ UNIVERSITI KEJURUTERAAN UTARA MALAYSIA – Exp.1 (Revision 1) 3 Power Circuit &Electromagnetic (EET 221/3 - Software Version) Laboratory Module 8. Use the measured values of E and I to determine the apparent power supplied to the load. 9. Determine the power factor cos Φ, and the reactive power Q. 10. Do the values calculated in step 9 demonstrate a low power factor and a notable amount of reactive power for the simulated motor load? Why? 11. Modify the RL circuit by adding capacitive reactance in parallel with the load as shown in Figure 1-3. Ensure that all sections of the Capacitive Load module are connected in parallel and that all the switches on the module are open. 12. Turn on the power and add capacitance to the circuit by closing the first switch in each section one after the other, then the middle switches and finally the third switch in each section, until all switches have been closed. At each new value of capacitance, click the Record Data button to record the line current measurement in the Data Table. Figure 1-3 Power factor Correction by Adding Capacitive Reactance. 13. After all data values have been recorded, display the Graph screen, select I1 as the Y-axis parameter and click the Line Graph button to observe the line current variation curve. Does the line current increase, decrease or stay the same as more and more capacitance is added to the circuit? 14. Is there a point at which the line current stops decreasing, and then starts to increase again when more capacitance is added? KOLEJ UNIVERSITI KEJURUTERAAN UTARA MALAYSIA – Exp.1 (Revision 1) 4 Power Circuit &Electromagnetic (EET 221/3 - Software Version) Laboratory Module 15. Carefully adjust the switches on the Capacitive Load module to obtain minimum line current, while readjusting the voltage control as necessary to maintain the exact value of ES given in the table. Use the settings on the module to determine the value of capacitive reactance that produces minimum line current. Note: You will have noticed that the line current is minimum when the capacitive reactance equals the inductive reactance. The negative reactive power then cancels the positive reactive power and line current is minimized. 16. With Xc adjusted for minimum line current, record the value of E, Imin and the active power on PQS1. 17. Determine the apparent power S. 18. Calculate the power factor cos Φ, and the reactive power Q. 19. Has the reactive power consumed by the circuit decreased between step 9 and step 18? Why? 20. Has the line current been reduced by a significant amount with the addition of capacitance? 21. Is the active power consumed by the RL load approximately the same with and without capacitance?Why? 22. Ensure that the Power Supply is turned off, the voltage control is fully counter clockwise and remove all leads and cables.
