The power factor is a useful topic covered as part of the curriculum on alternating current circuits. The first exposure is typically in introductory courses. It is revisited in upper level network theory or circuit analysis courses in physics and engineering. It is standard practice to include the power factor in the curriculum of the circuits courses taught to all engineers. While the power factor is simply the cosine of the phase angle between the voltage and current, it has practicaldoi:10.18260/1-2--19117 fatcat:g7dhkiyuwfexpbfrbjpfqffhru
