Reactive Energy Converter

This Reactive Energy Converter calculator can study the alternating current (AC) that flows through electrical circuits. You probably already know that you can imitate direct current (DC) by utilizing Ohm's law. Because AC circuits include both real and reactive power, this process is more challenging.

This calculator may be used to calculate the values of the different types of power in the circuit. A Reactive Energy factor formula that expresses the relationship between actual and apparent power will also be provided.

What sets Reactive Energy apart from actual power?

Only Real Power exists. Real power is required to produce heat and utilize reactive power's electric and magnetic fields. Since real and reactive power is equal, DC circuits have no VAr. Due to the zero phase angle () between current and voltage, reactive power does not exist in DC circuits.

The real force, which is responsive and obvious

o understand the reactive Energy factor, it would be beneficial first to understand the real, reactive, and apparent power.

Real power, also known as actual power or active power and denoted with the letter P, performs the actual work while being dissipated by resistors in an electrical circuit. In a DC circuit, it serves as the single source of energy. An AC circuit's current and voltage levels change sinusoidally rather than having constant values. If there is no phase shift between these two figures, all transferred power is active. Energy is measured in terms of watts.

Reactive power, denoted by the letter Q, is transferred when the current and voltage are 90 degrees out of phase. Since there is no net energy transfer in the AC circuit, no actual power is lost in this circumstance. Reactive power is never present in DC circuits. It has to do with the reactance capacitors, and inductors in AC circuits produce. We measure it in Volt-Amps-Reactive (VAR).

A combination of real and reactive powers is known as seeming power, symbolized by the letter S. It is the result of the RMS (root mean square) values of the circuit's voltage and current, without considering the influence of the phase angle. In addition, P and Q's vector sum is present. We measure apparent power in Volt-Amps (VA).

Reactive power is computed in what way?

In an alternating current scenario, reactive power is the power that returns from a destination toward the grid. It is computed using the formula reactive power = current*voltage*sin (phase difference). The Q symbol denotes reactive power.

How can I calculate reactive power using this online calculator?

Use the fields provided to enter current (I), voltage (V), and phase difference () before clicking the calculate button to use this reactive power calculator online. The reactive power calculation can be explained using the input numbers as follows: 249.4153 = 2.4*120*sin (1.0471975511964).

Details Regarding Reactive Energy Converter

Consider a short AC circuit with a linear load and a sinusoidal voltage-producing power source. The total of the instantaneous voltage and current for a sinusoidal alternating current is the immediate power (see the animation below):

Formula for a Reactive Power Converter
Where u is the phase shift between the voltage and current, t is the duration, IP is the maximum current, up is the maximum voltage, and angular frequency.

Energy only flows in one direction or not at all if the voltage and current are both zero because in a fully resistive load, the current and voltage peak and reverse polarity simultaneously. As a result, their product is always positive or zero.


Where VL is the line-to-line voltage on the winding side.

Rated DC Current = Base DC Current (Idb) (Idr)

Base DC Power (Pdc) is equal to nb Vdb Idb, where nb is the number of series bridges.

AC voltage at base (Vb) = (Va)

DC power times base AC power.
