This paper explains the significance of improving the power factor. It is an important technical parameter in the power system and an important means for energy saving and efficiency improvement. Taking the fluorescent lamp experiment as an example, the improved circuit makes the experiment easy to measure and analyze, and shows the method of improving the power factor of the circuit.
