Distortion of the Normal Waveform generally Transmitted by Nonlinear Loads


Distortion of the normal line waveform, generally transmitted by non-linear loads. Switch mode power supplies, variable speed motors and drives, copiers and fax machines are examples of non-linear loads.



Can cause communication errors, overheating and hardware damage.



Protect your critical equipment with a UPS!

Harmonic Distortion Definition: The presence of harmonics that change the AC voltage waveform from a simple sinusoidal to complex waveform. Harmonic distortion can be generated by a load and fed back into the AC mains, causing power problems to other equipment on the circuit.
