Abstract: Power system designs require considering various parameters effecting power factor. The research work is carried out to study and analyze the effect of impedance with varying inductance on the power factor of designed system. Eight different values of the inductance are taken from 269.1 m H to 1232.0 m H with capacitance of 50 µF and resistance 124 Ω. From the analysis it is observed that the current through the load is inversely proportional to the values of inductance and similar is the case for power factor. The minimum and maximum values of power factor obtained are 0.358 and 0.987 respectively.
