In any A.C circuit, always
A. The apparent power is greater than or equal to active power
B. The reactive power is greater than active power
C. The active power is greater than reactive power
D. The reactive power is more than apparent power

Answer: A. The apparent power is greater than or equal to active power

## In any A.C circuit always the apparent power is greater than or equal to active power.

Explanation:

Apparent power S=P+jQ

S=√(P2+Q2)

Here, P is active power, and Q is reactive power.

Hence always apparent power is greater than active power, in the case of resonance or balanced compensation of the reactive power it will be equal to the active power.

Hence In any A.C circuit always the apparent power is greater than or equal to active power.

option A is the correct answer.
