    Hi sir,
    I have download a xls sheet of ” size of capacitor bank for power factor correction” but I am not able to understand some parameters like:- enter old power factor,final load current, leading kVAR and how it is calculated while kVAR is dependent actual load current. If you have manual for this sheet please provide me.
    I am hopefully waiting for your positive response and will never forget your favor.
