Hi,

I am trying to figure out reactive power loss for a 965 ft 1/0 AWG cable.

I have already calculated the power loss at .3397 kw.
total current&.43
cable resistance=.000168
voltage4.5 kv
power factor=.95
The formula for the kw is: ((26.43^2 x .000168) x3) X 965 339.74/1000 = .3397 kw

I have been trying to use the formula Q=(P*sin p.f) 1.73 to calculate the KVAR loss, but I am not coming up with the right answer. The answer should be about 8.19 KVAR.

Any idea?

Thanks,

Troy
