    Hi All, I'm new around here as you can see, so go easy on me please :)

    I have a question in my last assignment, here it is.

    A 415V alternator is supplying a load of 55kW at a power factor of 0.65 lagging. Calculate:
    A. the KVA loading and
    B. the current taken from the alternator
    C. If the power factor is raised to unity find the new KVA loading.

    Here is what I have,
    A 84.615KVA
    B 203.892A
    C 55KVA

    It would be much appreciated if you guys could confirm these for me. I've got myself a little bit confused and I'm pulling my hair out.

    Thanks in advance, Bowlie.
