If there is high power factor, i.e. if the power factor is close to one:

1. Losses in form of heat will be reduced,

2. Cable becomes less bulky and easy to carry, and very cheap to afford, &

3. It also reduces over heating of transformers.

What is power factor? Whether it should be high or low? Why? 
Last Answer : Power factor should be high in order to get smooth operation of the system. Low power factor means losses will be more.it is the ratio of true power to apparent power. It has to be ideally 1. If it ... ex: 0.95 to meet actual power load has to draw less current (V constant), result in less losses)...
