I do not understand. What p.f = 0.5, o = 60. |

In 3-phase measurement O = 180, 60 degree for each wattmeter, here he told 3-phase measurement with one wattmeter is zero, the remaining two will share, so P.F = 0.5. |

Power factor = cos $ = 0.5. So, cos $ = 1/2, Or, cos $ = cos 60. So, $ = 60. |

tan $ = 1.732 (W1-W2)/(W1+W2). So tan $ = 1.732 (0.5-0)/(0.5+0). So tan $ = 1.732. so $ = 60. cos 60 = 0.5. |

Phase angle = 60 degree. PF = 0.5. W1 is positive and W2 = 0. One of the watt meter reads zero. |

When the meter reading is 0 then power factor will not be 0 according to formula base the pf is 0.5 then meter reading is 0 then power factor will be 0.5. |

If reading of one wattmetre is = 0, then $ = 60, therefore cos $ = 0.5. |

In 3 phase supply system phase angle is 120 b/w 3 phase. If one wattmeter is not giving reading then one phase is off. Now phase angle b/w 2 phase is 90 and cos 90 is 0 so how answer is 0.5? |

Please give me the explanation clearly to get the answer. |

Can anyone explain me in a simple manner? |
