Capacitors – Get More Power & Save Money
Power factor is the ratio between the KW and the KVA drawn by an electrical load. Where the KW is real power to load and KVA is the apparent load power. It is the measurement how an electrical equipment getting current in actual. A load with power factor of 0.85, results much higher losses in supply system and consumer has to pay higher bill… - Anuraj Kumar

Comparison Of Supercapacitors Based On Carbon Derived From Leaves Of Tree
Supercapacitor also known as electric double layer capacitor is emerging as a new energy storage device. Due to its high power density, wide thermal operating range, low cost, and long cycle life, it bridges the gap between battery and conventional capacitor. However, it has lower energy density than batteries. Electrode material plays a key role for improving the capacitance, and hence energy density of supercapacitor. In leading research and development organisations in the world, research works are going on in search of new electrode materials for improving the capacitance of the supercapacitors. This article presents a new approach to synthesise activated carbon from leaves of trees as an electrode material for supercapacitors. Activated carbon obtained by such process can be cost effective and also environmental friendly...- Gaurav Shekhar,Ashutosh Phatak, Dr PB Karandikar,Prof Swati Shirish More
