# Power Factor 2

A household currently has a load profile of $$6743\text{ W}$$ with a maximum demand of $$11\text{ KVA}$$. The house requires some power factor correction and asks you to design a capacitor bank to increase the overall power factor. What size capacitor bank is required (in mF) to increase the current power factor to 0.9 lagging?

Assume the grid frequency is at $$50 \text{ Hz}$$ at a overall stable voltage of 230 Vln
