Remarks on the Definitions of Reactive Power by Kusters and Moore in Circuits with Distorted Characteristics.
The paper presents a critical analysis of the apparent power in nonsinusoidal systems decomposition, proposed by N. L. Kusters and W. J. M. Moore as well as a verification to what degree that concept is useful for power-factor improvement problems. It was shown, that the capacitive reactive power, Q//c, compensation may not result in the highest value of the power-factor, which is possible with capacitive compensation. The conclusion that the residual reactive power, Q//c//r, cannot be compensated by a passive branch, is not true.
