A motor PF varies with load.
Under what conditions is the power factor measured?
I was wondering the same thing. What application requires knowing the inductance of a motor? Knowing the current and power factor versus load and RPM provides the needed information.When you find it's inductance, what will you do with it??
You'd have to know the motor current and voltage when the PF was measured.
From that you can calculate the inductance as if it were a series RL circuit.
When you find it's inductance, what will you do with it??
Do you understand phasor calculations?do you have the equation for that Mr Crutschow?
Do you understand phasor calculations?
Here's a discussion of an RL series circuit, which is what a motor looks like.
Given the voltage, current and phase angle (power factor) you can calculate L.
