Power Factor vs Displacement Factor Whats the Difference

Understand the differences between power factor and displacement factor, plus why a harmonic investigation is necessary.

 

True power factor (PF) and displacement power factor (DPF) are commonly available on power analyzers and loggers.

 

At first glance (and in some situations), they appear to measure the same thing, but there is an important difference.

 

A review of their definitions, and when to use each is presented here...
