what is power factor? whether it should be high or low? why?

Answer Posted / das

it is the ratio of true power to apperent power. it has to
be ideally 1. if it is too low then cable over heating &
equipment overloading will occur. if it is greater than 1
then load will act as capacitor and starts feeding the
source. will cause nusence tripping
