Where QL is the power dissipation through the inductor in volt-amperes reactive (VAR), I is the current in amperes (A), and UL is the voltage across the inductor in volts (V).

**Power Dissipation through Capacitor (QC):**

Formula: QC = I * UC

Where QC is the power dissipation through the capacitor in volt-amperes reactive (VAR), I is the current in amperes (A), and UC is the voltage across the capacitor in volts (V).

**Phase Angle (Ï†):**

Formula: Ï† = arctan((XL - XC) / R)

Where Ï† is the phase angle in radians, XL is the inductive reactance in ohms (Î©), XC is the capacitive reactance in ohms (Î©), and R is the resistance in ohms (Î©).

**Power Factor (PF):**

Formula: PF = cos(Ï†)

Where PF is the power factor, and Ï† is the phase angle in radians.

**Total Active Power (P):**
