The meter showed 58 watts or .058 in kw. I entered 0.9 as the desired power factor. The answer in KVAR units was 0.06. KVAR=2pfCufV^2x10^-9. p is pye, f is frequency C is capacitance in uf. Substituting to get the capacitance I got 3.3uf. I used a 3.2uf.

Using this capacitor I got a new power factor reading of 0.94 and current reading of 0.24 amps.

What I don't understand is the meter was still showing 58 watts even though the current was much less with the capacitor. Can this be explained? Nothing seems to be gained by using a capacitor.
