Hallo Mark
1. Motor Load was constant through out experiment for both with and without capacitor in circuit .
that same motor is connected with constant flow pump application.
2. Without capacitor power factor was : 0.80 and with capacitor power factor is : 0.95
3. Regarding voltage drop it is seems to be nil as where capacitor added and power measure is seprated
by Y/D starter contactor only.
4.Before correction feeder line current was - R-48.0A Y-48.0A B-49.0A / After correction Current is -R-40A Y- 40A B-41.0A



Hi subhash
you have done very good job, have you tried it on another motors
what is your experiance now?
is it really worth to connect the capacitors at motor ?
