Explanation:-
Answer : ADiscuss it below :Arvind Said on 2016-10-19 08:56:04Capacitor connected in parallel :- improve power factor. Capacitor connected in series :- improve power transfer capability of transmission line. Arundeep Said on 2015-07-25 04:47:05It is always connected in parallel for AC supply and untill they charge, a cap acts like a short circuit, and an inductor acts like an open circuit. But after charging vice-versa !! OOPS Login [Click here] is required to post your answer/resultHelp other students, write article, leave your comments |
