Original poster: Vardan <vardan01@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Hi Daniel,The "power factor" is normally the SIN of the angular differencebetween the voltage and current sine waves in a steady statesystem. A Tesla coil is not very steady state at all so the powerfactor varies over time and may lack any real meaning.Pure inductors and capacitors have very low power factors since thevoltage and current waveforms are out of phase by 90 degrees (SIN(90) = 0).

Terry, I think you mean cos(theta)... sin(90) = 1, cos(90)=0
