Why is power factor listed in a Passive Filter specification?

HPS Centurion™ P passive harmonic filters use an broad band filter circuit which includes one or more capacitors.  The capacitance will add to leading kVArs and help improve lagging power factor.  In addition, the low kVAr to KW ratio of HPS Centurion P passive harmonic filters avoid leading power in low load conditions without the need of a capacitor contactor.
