A Single PFC for 3phase is still attractive with achievable PF more than 0.9, by looking at the area that miss to by the single PFC is comparably small. The balances and whether each phase having same PF will not be different much compare to 3 PFC is used. The PF achieved PF by single PFC for individual line will not be much different if the 3Phase voltage balance is not much. Is worth to consider for its simplicity and cost for relative small power.

Please let me know the various factors which effects the design of a 3-phase LT motor. How does RPM effects on power factor ? does low RPM / higher pole motors have low power factor ? why?
