Maybe Wayne can teach us about power factor and correction. I remember reading about it and giving up totally. The math formulas were far beyond me. Oh if only I was whipped and whipped hard to study math long ago. I did try but other than the very basics and my brain refused to function. Maybe I really did need to make use of a big oak head basher.
Speaking about power factor correcting you should see what's up on the utility poles near me. Hint: Monster capacitor banks. We have too many inductive motor loads for the area. All the new YUPPEE houses have to have AC to keep them at 55F when it's 100F plus and 95% RH outside. I'm fine at 76F and 50% RH in the summer for indoors but they want it COLD and they make more $$$ in a day than I will in my entire life !!! Damn them ... They can't even tie their shoes correctly.
