A power factor represents the relationship between Active Power (KW) and Apparent Power (KVA), with KVA denoting the overall power consumption. Apparent power, measured in KVA, encompasses both active power and reactive power (KVAR). Reactive power, which constitutes non-useful power, is a component of apparent power (KVA). Elements contributing to reactive power (KVAR) include devices such as transformers, induction motors, and high-intensity lights. A high level of reactive power can indicate a poor power factor, potentially leading to increased electricity expenses on your bills.

This stands for kilo-volt-ampere and determines what can be powered by the generator.
