COS(phaseangle) = R/Z.

V = IZ.

If V of inductor increases, Z increases so cos(phaseangle) decreases so phase angle increases.

V of inductor directly proportional to the reactance of inductor when V across L greater than V across R. Xl is greater than R circuit in inductive in nature. So phase angle increases.

It is explained by the phasor diagram.

Phase angle =tan'(Vc/Vr).
