Power factor calculation for metering application

Hi,

I have been using the metering library on KM14Z board. Currently I am facing problem in calculating the power factor using the Filter based algorithm of metering library. There are no API's available to calculate the power factor, therefore I am calculating it by dividing Active power with S(VA).

PF = P(Watts)/S(VA).

This calculation gives me wrong results. Could someone guide me on this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Bharath,

In my opinion, the power factor is an angle, so it should be arccos(P/sqrt(P**2+Q**2)),P is active energy, Q is reactive energy, do you use the formula to compute it?
