In which configuration the capacitors for power factor improvement in case of 3-phase loads are used

For power factor improvement in case of 3-phase loads, the capacitors are connected in which configuration:

  1. Star
  2. Delta
  3. Any of above
  4. None of above

Correct answer: 2. Delta

Explanation: Capacitors are connected in delta configuration. The reason being that capacitance of capacitor required is one-third of that required for the star configuration.
