..Hello,
..It is the mains current waveform into a simulation of a 10W flyback LED driver (mains voltage also shown)
Unfortunately, LTspice doesn't do power factor.

Hi,

Are you refering to the reactive to real power ratio?

True power will be found at any point of the curve by multiplying the voltage * current at the same point of the 'X' vector. Therefore the power factor will be the apparent power/true power.
