K-Factor

The K FACTOR TRANSFORMER is an isolating transformer that can be loaded at 100% of load plus the harmonics load without overheating. The losses generated by the harmonics can be calculated by multiplying the K factor by the stray losses. The K FACTOR is derived from a mathematical formula, which states that the eddy current losses in a transformer will be increased in direct proportion to the sum of the percentage current at a given harmonic level multiplied by the square of the harmonic order.

Advantages

  • Prevent the overheating of the transformer by increasing the stray losses with a K factor.
  • Prevent neutral overheating by over sizing it at 200%.
  • More efficient.
