K-Factor transformers

Electro-Wind produces a range of K Factor transformers designed for use modern electronic devices such as computers, faxes, medical equipment and variable speed drives. Non linear loads such as computer create sinusoidal waveforms and therefore strong harmonics.

Harmonics create numerous problems with non K Factor transformers such as: overheating, increased stray losses by a factor (K Factor) with the additional losses that are created causing the increase in temperature, high neutral currents in a transformers secondary winding due to the presence of tripled harmonics as 3rd, 6th and 9th, problems with the tripping of protective devices and blown fuses.
