Power Factor is a ratio between true and apparent power. Its values range between 0 to 1. While capacitors play a major role in the correction of power factor, the Electrical Engineers, technicians and other people at plants are interested to improve the power factor by selecting the proper value of the capacitor.
Today Electrical Engineering XYZ shares the power factor correction chart which helps you select the proper size of capacitor required for improving the system.

Instructions for use:
- The first row of the chart (from the top) displays the required power factor. Whereas the first column (from left) represents the present PF of the system.
- For example, if your system is at 0.8 PF and you want an improvement to 0.9 and your system has real power 50 MW, then you need to multiply 50 MW by 0.266
