This should work for those interested:

(1/(2*3.1416*(Frequency)*(Voltage))/(((Sqrt(((Watts/Load PF)^)-(Watts^))-((Voltage*((Sqrt((((Watts/desired PF)^)-(Watts^))))/Votage)))*1000000

Answer should come in microfarads...

Let me know if I missed something...


Dnk....

Not sure where this gets me, it only gives you the capacitor value needed...
