kVAR to Farad Calculation:

kVAR is the SI unit of reactive power and Farad is the SI unit of Capacitor. The capacitance C(μF) in microfarad is equal to 159235000 times of the Reactive Power Q(kVAR) in kVAR divided by the product of frequency F(Hz) in Hertz and the voltage V(V) in volts. Hence, for calculating Capacitor value from kVAR the formula can be written as,

C(μF) = 159235000 x Q(kVAR) / (F(Hz) x V(V)2)  

In other words,

Micro Farad = 159235000 x kVAR / (Hz x Volts 2)

Milli Farad = 159235 x kVAR / (Hz x Volts 2)

Farad = 159.235 x kVAR / (Hz x Volts 2)

Example:

Let we take an example of 1 kvar capacitor bank is connected across the 240 voltage system with the operating frequency of 50Hz. Calculate the capacitor values in microfarad, Milli farad and Farad.

Apply our formula,

C(μF) = 159235000 x 1 / (50 x 2402)

 = 55.29 Micro farad.

The same can be converted to milli farad and Farad,

C(mF) = 0.05529 mF

C(F) = 0.00005529 F
