I know that the phase angle between I and V determines the power factor (cos(angle)) and thus the fraction of power supplied that can do real work. Also that a phase angle of 90 degrees means that none of the delivered power can do real work in the system. What happens when the phase angle goes over 90 degrees though? Will this again give real power to the system?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
