What is the formula for reactive power?

2 Answers

Answer :

Reactive power is denoted by letter "Q". 

Q = I2X

The unit of reactive power is Volt-Ampere-reactive (VAR).

Answer :

The formula for reactive power is,

Reactive power = VI sin (phi)
The unit of reactive power is VAR ( Volt ampere reactive). The reactive power is denoted by 'Q'.

The formula for real power is,
Real power = VI cos (phi)
The unit of real power is watts. The real power is denoted by 'P'.
