Glossary Of Terms

NONLINEAR LOAD

Electrical load which draws current discontinuously or whose current waveform is different from the voltage waveform supplying the load. Systems with some or all nonlinear loads have harmonic currents in the electrical distribution system. Nonlinear loads typically draw distorted current and/or voltage waveforms. Examples of nonlinear loads include variable frequency drives, computers, fluorescent lighting. (see: Variable Frequency Drives; Distortion; Linear)
