Inductive Loads, also called Lagging Loads or Inductive Load Banks or Inductive Reactive Loads or Power Factor Loads, are AC loads that are predominantly inductive in nature so that the alternating current lags behind the alternating voltage when the current flows into the load.

### How do you tell if an RLC circuit is inductive or capacitive?

If the inductive reactance is greater than the capacitive reactance i.e XL > XC, then the RLC circuit has lagging phase angle and if the capacitive reactance is greater than the inductive reactance i.e XC > XL then, the RLC circuit have leading phase angle and if both inductive and capacitive are same i.e XL = XC then …

Capacitive loads include energy stored in materials and devices, such as capacitors, and cause changes in voltage to lag behind changes in current. Capacitive loads are less common than inductive and resistive loads, but are becoming more common with the deployment of increasingly complex electronics.

Reactive/Inductive Load – An inductive load converts current into a magnetic field. Inductive reactance resists the change to current, causing the circuit current to lag voltage. Examples of devices producing reactive/inductive loads include motors, transformers and chokes.

In inductive loads, such as an electric motor, the voltage wave is ahead of the current wave. The difference between the two waves creates a secondary voltage that moves in opposition to the voltage from your energy source, known as inductance.

What is the difference between inductive load and capacitive?

In capacitive loads also, current & voltage are out of phase with each other. The only difference is that, in capacitive load current leads the voltage by 90 deg. Whereas, in inductive load current lags behind the voltage by 90 deg. Now, let’s talk about the misconception on which I spoke in the beginning of this video.

TYPES OF ELECTRIC LOADS RESISTIVE LOAD: The resistance in a wire (i.e., conductor) causes friction and reduces the amount of current flow if the voltage remains constant. INDUCTIVE LOAD: Inductive loads require a magnetic field to operate. All electrical loads that have a coil of wire to produce the magnetic field are called inductive loads. CAPACITIVE LOAD:
