Form factor is significant in the study of transformer losses; as is well known, hysteresis loss is small when the form factor is large, and vice versa. Every wave shape has a definite value of form factor; but the converse is not true, for a particular value of form factor does not indicate a particular wave shape. A wave may contain a third harmonic equal to seventy five per cent of the fundamental and still have the same form factor as a true sine wave. Form factor, therefore, has no general… Expand

With the birth of the transformer and the first distribution of alternating currents, wave form assumed interest, and methods were developed for its determination, chiefly the point-by-point method… Expand

The author presents a method for the determination of the order and percentage of the various components of an alternating wave of e. m. f., using indicating meters and other inexpensive apparatus.… Expand

This model is that of a split mother board which contains smaller circuit boards which are connected by a voltage stabilizer, Hence, the circuit boards can be smaller form factors, reducing the size of computers and electronic devices.Expand
