What is the unit for electricity consumption?

There are three types of electric power. Active Power (P), also known as Watts, is the most well-known. This is the price you pay for your electricity bill.

Complex Power (S), which is a unit of Volt times Ampere, emerges when we consider the worldwide alternating current (AC), power system.

Complex power (S), can be expressed in P + JQ, where P is the actual component of complex power, which, as previously mentioned, is the active power.

The equation’s Q is the reactive power unit. Electrical engineers will work to reduce reactive power, as it is often a sign of inefficiency in power transmission.
