Another question is how do i identify whether it's a leading or a lagging power factor ? The formula for real power is Real power (W) = Voltage(V) × Current consumed (A) × Power Factor.

There is leading and lagging power factor with the value ( ex: 0.3 leading is good but 0.3 lagging will cause less efficiency and power loss) So how do i defy the real power as if i were to put 0.3 into the formula.. i'll be getting the same answer. Hopefully i'm not confusing people. Hope u guys can help. thanks.
