Why reactive power is not tranferred between source and load

  1. Mar 12, 2017 #1
    I have read that at a balanced three phase AC system reactive power is not tranferred between source and load but instead it is exchanged between system phases.

    Is this true? I can't find any book or paper that corroborate this

    No, not true. See the PF Insights articles on this site. AC Power Analysis, Part 1 and Part 2.
