Hi.Can someone please help explain how it is that in a power system it is possible to have real and reactive power moving in opposite directions? Or is this just to do with nomenclature and ways of describing leading and lagging power factor?
Also how exactly does a generator exporting with a leading or lagging power factor affect how its impact on the voltage of the network, ie a lagging pf can support the voltage on a network?
