### Example Calculations

**Single Phase Calculation**:- If you have a voltage of 230V, a current of 10A, and a power of 2000W, the power factor (PF) is calculated as:

**PF= ****2000** =2000 =0.87
230x10 2300

**Three-Phase (Line to Line Voltage) Calculation**:

- If you have a voltage of 400V, a current of 5A, and a power of 3000W, the power factor (PF) is calculated as:

**PF= 3000 =3000 =0.87
400 x 5 x √3 3464.1**

**Three-Phase (Line to Neutral Voltage) Calculation**:

- If you have a voltage of 230V, a current of 10A, and a power of 6000W, the power factor (PF) is calculated as:

**PF= 6000 =6000 =0.87
230 x 10 x 3 6900**

### Formulas Used in the Power Factor Calculator

The Power Factor (PF) calculator computes the power factor using the formulas for different types of electrical systems: AC Single Phase, AC Three Phase (Line to Line Voltage), and AC Three Phase (Line to Neutral Voltage).

### 1. AC Single Phase

For an AC Single Phase system, the power factor is calculated using the formula:

**PF = P
V X I**

Where:

- P is the real power in watts (W)
- V is the voltage in volts (V)
- I is the current in amperes (A)

### 2. AC Three Phase (Line to Line Voltage)

For an AC Three Phase system using line-to-line voltage, the power factor is calculated using the formula:

**PF = P
V X I** **X √3**

Where:

- P is the real power in watts (W)
- V is the line-to-line voltage in volts (V)
- I is the current in amperes (A)
**√3** is the square root of 3 (approximately 1.732)

### 3. AC Three Phase (Line to Neutral Voltage)

For an AC Three Phase system using line-to-neutral voltage, the power factor is calculated using the formula:

**PF = P
V X I** **X 3**

Where:

- P is the real power in watts (W)
- V is the line-to-neutral voltage in volts (V)
- I is the current in amperes (A)
- 3 is the number of phases
