Power Factor: What it is and Why it Matters?

Power factor

When it comes to electrical power, there’s more to it than just the amount of energy being consumed. One of the most important concepts in electrical engineering is the power factor, which refers to the ratio between the real power being used to perform work and the apparent power being supplied to the system. Real …
