A fixed capacitor-thyristor controlled reactor (FC-TCR) type of power factor compensator with different series R-L load is analyzed using an approximate circuit. The variation of reactive power and power factor before and after compensation is examined. The simulation is carried out in PSIM software for 3-phase 440 volt. The close loop control is possible for different load condition. Automatic firing angle is adjusted such that minimum VAR taken from the supply & power factor is maintain near to unity.
