Load power factor has a significant effect on the losses experienced by equipment and the electrical network which is fixed by power factor correction.
The technical definition of a power factor in AC circuits is the ratio of real power (kW) used to do work and apparent power (kVA) supplied to the load.
Ideally this should be 1, meaning that all the power supplied to the load is being used to the work unfortunately in the most real world situations this is not the case.
