PHYS345 Electricity and Electronics

Hint for 7.16

The unbalanced load impedance is 145 ohm \/ 36.9 deg.

Harder way: You may add a capacitor in parallel to this impedance and determine when the effective net reactance is zeroed.

Easier way: Evaluate the reactive power when unbalanced and use that quantity to determine what capacitive reactance is required.
