I am trying to get my head around a few things.

If I have an inverter connected to a distribution network, if the power factor of the network is 0.98 for example and the inverter has a power factor of 0.95, can the inverter still export to the grid?

The way I understand it is that the inverter in this scenarion could still export real power if the voltage at the inverter busbar is higher than the distribution network voltage but it will draw Vars from the network and hence decreas the power factor of the network at the point of connection.

Is all this correct?

Thanks
