reactive power is greater in load side compare to generator what will happen?

Reactive power is a power that flows back and forth the circuit,it does not perform any work and it is not consumed by the circuit also. In short reactive power can be termed as the unwanted power.
This has to be reduced in order have good power factor .
P=P-jQ. ( if Q>P)  no effect????

VI*sin()
Power associated by inductor and capacitor are called reactivepower
