Power factor correction may be applied either by an electricalpower transmission utility to improve the stability and  efficiency of the transmission network orcorrection may be installed by individual electrical customers to reduce thecosts charged to them by their electricity supplier. In order to improvetransmission effect, power factor correction research has become a hot topic.Many control methods for the power Factor Correction (PFC) have been proposed.This thesis describe the design and development of a power factor corrector usingATmega32 chip. This involves measuring the power factor value using ATmega32and proper algorithm to describe and switch sufficient capacitors in order tocompensate reactive power, thus bringing power factor near to unity.

LabVIEW software is used to calculate the rmscurrent, rms voltage, phase angle of voltage and current, harmonic contents,active power, reactive power, apparent power and power factor of each phase ofphase of three phase power system. Total revue granted is also calculated.        TABLEOF CONTENTS CHAPTERNo.1 INTRODUCTION TO THE POWER FACTOR   (1-16)1.1     POWERFACTOR ————————————————————    2          1.1.1DEFINITION ————————————————————   21.

1Power Factor: 1.1.1   Definition:                      Power factor is definedas “The cosine angle between voltage and current in an A.C circuit”. In an A.

Ccircuit, there is generally a phase difference between voltage and current. Theterm cosine ? is called power factor ofthe circuit. If the circuit is inductive, the current lags behind the voltageand power factor is referred to as lagging. However, in a capacitive circuitleads the voltages and the power factor is to be leading.

Power factor is the ratio between actual powers tothe apparent power. For purely resistive load the power factor is unity. Active andreactive power is designed by P and Q respectively. The average power in acircuit is called active power and the power that supplies the stored energy inreactive elements is called reactive power. From the phasor diagram for diagram for AC impedance,it can be seen that the power factor is R/Z. For a purely resistive AC circuit,R=Z and the power factor = 1.The low power factor is highly undesirable as itcauses an increase I current, resulting in additional losses in active power inall elements of a power system from power station generator down to theutilization devices 1-3.
