Hello guys can you explain me how to control and convert reactive power in motors and electric consumption? invterters can convert and control reactive power? what kind of technology is that?

Reactive power is not real power and is simply the part of the AC voltage waveform that is out of phase with the current waveform.
What do you mean "convert" the reactive power?
The best you can do is cancel it with the opposite phase reactive power. Thus inductive reactive power from a motor can be cancelled by capacitive reactive power from large capacitors.
