Harmonic content of a
distribution system is indicated by a number called K-Factor.
Larger values of "K" indicate the presence of more
harmonics in the load. Harmonic content of a load may be
determined by measurement utilizing a recording analyzing meter.
Linear loads have a K-Factor of 1. Switch mode power supplies
have a K-Factor as high as K-20. Other nonlinear loads have a
K-Factor which varies with the device.
Our K-Factor transformers are specifically engineered to
operate at full load and full harmonic rating without exceeding
the rated insulation system values - effectively neutralizing
the dangerous effects of temperature and circulating currents.
Windings and cores are designed to operate in the presence of
triplen harmonics without overheating or forcing the core into
saturation. These transformers will provide years of trouble
free service to large office buildings, industrial plants,
processing equipment and any load with a designated harmonic
