The power factor value in RLC circuits is determined by the amount of pure resistance (R), self-inductance of the coil (L) and the capacitance of the capacitor (C). In this study, the measurement of the power factor value in series and parallel RLC circuits is conducted through experimental and simulation testing with the values of L and R as independent variables, while the value of C as a fixed. The purpose of this research is to determine the effect of inductance on the power factor in RLC circuit and to prove whether the experimental results are close to the simulation results. The experiment and simulation results are presented in graphical form. The relationship between the power factor and the inductive reactance of the experimental results for the values of R = 10 Ω and R = 20 Ω shows a pattern closed to the simulation results. In the series RLC circuit the power factor will decrease with the addition of the inductive reactance value, at R = 10 Ω and R = 20 Ω. Experimental calculation results show an average relative uncertainty below 10% of the theoretical calculation results. In the parallel RLC circuit, the experimental and simulation results both show a decrease in the power factor with the increase in the value of inductive reactance, at R = 10 Ω and R = 20 Ω. Experimental calculation results show an average relative uncertainty below 13% of the theoretical calculation results.
