Instrument To Measure Kvar


Recommended Posts

Hello mml


You will have difficulty finding such a device because the KVAR of any given capacitor is dependent on the applied voltage and frequency.

If you wish to make a measurement, the best indication, is the current drawn at the required voltage and frequency.


Connect up your desired voltage, measure the current and multiply the voltage and current frequency to get the VARs. Divide by 1000 to get KVARs. If the capacitor is a three phase capacitor, multiply the phase to phase voltage by the average current and multiply by root three.

Hi Bob,

You are so right. Brain got ahead of the fingers!!

I have corrected it now.
