Actually, that statement is a bit misleading. Since a purely reactive circuit consumes no power at all. Phrased more precisely, phase angle is brought as close to zero as possible to insure that all available power will be delivered to the load.rvb53,
You will use a capacitor to balance the reactive power your circuit is using, and try to bring reactive power as close to zero as you reasonably can, so that only real power is used--minimizing power loss/waste.
Do you have a good grasp of Ohms Law? If you do we can take it from there. By the way, don't feel bad about not fully grasping this subject. I've been a professional in this industry since 1966 and I remember vividly when phase angle was first introduced to me and how confused I was!I need more information that phase angle infer to ,other than above all...
