Section 6-3 Capacitive Reactance in Series and Parallel


 

Series Capacitive Reactance

 

Equation

Total Series Capacitive Reactance

XCT = XC1 + XC2 + XC3 + ... + XCn

Where

XCT = Total capacitive reactance of the series circuit
XC1, XC2, XC3, XCn = Reactance of the individual capacitors

 

Parallel Capacitive Reactance

 

Equation

Total Parallel Capacitive Reactance

 

XCT =

XC1 XC2 XC3 XCn

Where

XCT = Total capacitive reactance of the parallel circuit
XC1, XC2, XC3, XCn = Reactance of the individual capacitors
