As per calculation Apparent power becomes 360 KVA & PF becomes 0.83

So due to reduce in the True power the reactive power requirement has increased & power factor will come down to 0.83.

**So in order to maintain the power factor more than 0.9 we need to increase the capacity of the capacitor bank to avoid penalty & also make the system more efficient.**
