Real, Reactive and Apparent
Power in AC Circuits
in DC circuits: P=VI but= in AC circuits: average
power supplied to the load will be affected by the
phase angle u between the voltage and the current.
If load is inductive the phase angle (also called
impedance angle) is positive; (i.e, phase angle of
current will lag the phase angle of the voltage) and
the load will consume both real and positive reactive
power
If the load is capacitive the impedance angle will be
negative (the phase angle of the current will lead the
phase angle of the voltage) and the load will
consume real power and supply reactive power.

Resistive and Reactive Loads
Ontoseno Penangsang
zenno_379@yahoo.com
Impedance Angle, Current
Angle & Power
Inductive loads positive impedance
angle, current angle lags voltage angle
Capacitive loads negative impedance
angle, current angle leads voltage angle
Both types of loads consume real power
One (inductive) consumes reactive as
well while the other (capacitive) supplies
reactive power

Real and Reactive Power
Equations
First term is energy flow into the circuit Average =
Real power (P)
Second term is power transferred back and forth
between source and load (Reactive power Q)
v(t) = 2 V cos t
i(t) = 2 I cos (t)
p(t) = v(t) i(t) = 2VIcos t cos (t)
p(t) = VI cos (1 + cos 2t) + VI sin sin (2t)
Ontoseno Penangsang
zenno_379@yahoo.com
Real term averages to P = VI cos (+)
Reactive term (amplitude) to Q = VI sin
(+/)
Reactive power is the power that is first stored and then
released in the magnetic field of an inductor or in the
electric field of a capacitor
Apparent Power (S) is just = VI

Review V, I, Z
If load is inductive then the Phase Angle
(Impedance Angle ZZu
o
) is positive, If
phase angle is positive, the phase angle
of the current flowing through the load
will lag the voltage phase angle across
the load by the impedance angle ZZu
