# Real Reactive and Apparent Power Calculator

A lot of Engineering Student or even Engineer  got Confused about what is a Real Power , Apparent Power , Reactive Power  and Power Factor.

The  real reactive and apparent Power Calculator  will help you calculate these values.

## In Simple English What is  a Real , Reactive and Apparent Power

1. Apparent Power (KVA) -> Is the Input Power Supply by the Grid , Power Source ( eg : Generator ) etc
2. Reactance Power (Kvar)-> Is the Power Consume within the Equipment.
3. True Power (KW)-> The Real Out put power after taking Reactance Power into Consideration
4. Power Factor (PF)-> Real Power  divided by Apparent Power. In a Perfect theoretical Scenario it should be 1

Example :  The Grid Supply Power to your Iron ( That is the Apparent Power)

In your Iron  there are Coils  which consume some Power  ( That is the Reactance Power )

Your Iron Output Electric  convert to Heat  in ( KW) that is your True Power

## The Power Triangle

Refer the Power Triangle below:

## The Formulae and How to Calculate :

Apparent Power =  True Power / PF

Reactance Power  =  sin θ x  Apparent Power

Power Factor = True Power / Apparent Power

True Power = Apparent Power  x Power Factor
