Hi, Im using the ade7753, i want to obtain the power factor  but when i read some inductive or capacitive load the active power and the apparent power are the same?
I try to meter the energy in a fluorescente tube that has a power factor=0.6, when I meter both powers are equal.
To obtain active energy I use the LAENERGY register
To obtain apparente energy I usa the LAVAENERGY register
To get the power factor I do active power/apparent power
My frequency line is 50Hz. I use a shunt as a transductor.
Thanks a lot!
