Either by using a Spice simulation, or by guessing a PFC capacitance,
and refining it for minimum current draw.
This works very well for systems using an RSG. Howeveer, static gap
behaviour is so chaotic that I think PFC is probably not very
effective in these systems ???
See my other post on Designing for High Power Factor too.
