    good day All.i was reading about the optimization of a rural area using renewable sources when i came across the term EFFECTIVE POWER DELIVERY FACTOR (EPDF). Please i need an explicit and in-depth explanation of this term.numerical examples showing how it is used is highly needed.All links, journals etc too will be most welcome.many thanks

    Any corrections made to 'Power Factor', which is a measure of voltage and current phase difference, would create a new power delivery factor. If these changes are measured over time you would get an 'average' power delivery factor. If measured once, they would be considered an 'instantaneous' value.
    A system which responds to changes in power factor in such a way that phase difference between voltage and current is reduced would increase the effective power delivery factor of a circuit, or distribution system.
    Several ways exist for doing this and they all have merits and drawbacks.

    Is there a method in particular you can name?
