Power factor monitor in 3phase motor
Posted 27 January 2005 - 04:36 PM
The circuit in the link http://www.designnot...ITS/pwrfact.htm
is just for one phase!
Instead of current transformer can I use hcpl-788j?

You need a Current transformer to mearsure the current. An opto isolator will not carry the current.

The output is a pulse at the AC frequency, in my case 50Hz, whose width is inversely proportional to the power factor. When the pulse width is zero, the power factor is one. But how do I know that power factor is for example 0.7? In this case what is the pulse width?
This ideia itīs correct...
But itīs inversely proportional so 1-x=Final Power factor
And this ideia applies to all power factorīs.
Please say something!
