Wortformen:(regular plural) lagging loads
( Electrical engineering : Electrical power , Power consumption )
load1, load2, load3
Connecting capacitors near the point of the lagging load cancels the lagging current and allows for most efficient use of conductors and other
A lagging load is a reactive load in which inductive reactance exceeds the capacitive reactance
and therefore carries a lagging current with respect to the voltage across its terminals.
A lagging load is one where the phase of the current lags behind the phase of the voltage when supplied
with an alternating voltage.
