What is a power factor?

The power factor is a coefficient of measuring the efficiency of electrical equipment.

Its size is related to the load properties of the circuit, such as incandescent bulbs, electricity furnaces etc. the resistance loads are 1

Generally, the circuit power factor having an inductive load is less than 1.

The power factor is low, and the reactive power is high, thereby reducing the utilization of the equipment, increasing the line power loss.
