A method is presented for finding the optimum LC combination for power factor compensation at linear loads in the presence of voltage source harmonics while the total voltamperes of the compensator capacitor and reactor is constrained. The end product is displayed in graph form where for any given compensator voltampere rating or cost, the maximum possible power factor and corresponding LC combination can be found. Examples are included showing that the cost of such an LC compensator may be less than that of a purely capacitive optimum compensator achieving the same power factor.
